Very good.

OK.  Now that we know that you are interested in the 1 km national composite of
base reflectivity product, we can find out if there are any universities that
would be willing to feed you the data using our LDM.  Can you tell us exactly
where you are located so that we can start looking for a site?

As soon as we know where your office(s) are, we can contact some universities
to see if they are willing to feed you the 1 km composites.  Since this data
is not high-volume, it would not be a great strain for an upstream feed site.

> How are your composite nexrad data grib files generated?


> Are you using NOAA data to do so?

The composites are created from the Nexrad Level III base reflectivity products
that are broadcast in NOAAPORT.  Both the NOAAPORT datastream and GEMPAK are
available free of charge; NOAAPORT is a satellite-broadcast stream from the
US NWS; GEMPAK is available from us (but we limit full support to university

> Any info would be fantastic!

There is not much more to tell.  As soon as we know where you are, we can
start looking for a site that is willing to feed you the data.

> Thank you again!

No worries.
