[Datastream #BAP-247084]: Question...



Hi Jeff,

Unidata does not sell access to data (in fact, we don't sell anything).  We
are funded by the National Science Foundation to develop, distribute, and 
support
software for the university community.  All of the software we develop is
available free-of-charge as is our support for said software.

If you are looking to purchase access to the NEXRAD Level II data, you should
contact the sites that were chosen by NOAA/NWS to act as the toplevel 
redistributors
of the data (in no particular order):

University of Oklahoma/IRaDS
www.irads.net

Purdue University
http://roskilde.eas.purdue.edu/~level2/

Education and Research Consortium of the Western Carolinas (ERC)
www.ercbroadband.org/denterpage.php?pagename=wsr-88d

An excellent writeup on the originations of the NEXRAD Level II effort can be 
found in
kelvin.ou.edu/CRAFT_Paper.pdf.  This paper was just published in the Bulletin 
of the
American Meteorological Society (BAMS).

> Thanks,

No worries.

Cheers,

Tom
