The GEMPAK distribution $NAWIPS/ldm/etc/templates/pqact.gempak_images
has a global catch all NIMAGE entry at the very bottom. This
action is what I use to store each product from the NIMAGE feed
(the SUPER-NATIONAL product is used as the satellite image in the
GEMPAK web link you reference above). If you wanted to restrict a
feed request for NIMAGE to just these composites, you could
use the pattern "SUPER-NATIONAL" instead of ".*" in your
ldmd.conf request line.

I run GPMAP from a script to display current watches, warnings, and
the IR satellite image to produce the GIF output image.
