[IDD #BHD-107104]: Fwd: NLDN Data feed

Hi Greg,

The data is free to ".edu" groups in NCAR/UCAR.  The same is true for
the NLDN data from SUNY Albany (who distributes the data to the
Unidata "university" community (includes UCAR/NCAR)).

I don't think that the source of funding is important.  The licensing
agreement does, however, prohibit us from relaying the data to NOAA.

OK.  Please let Steve now that he can touch base with us at any
time on this issue.  Also, Kim Rauenzahn of WSI has been _very_
helpful in all of this, so she would be a good person to contact
(includes email) with any questions or concerns:

> Thanks again for all you work with WSI on this.

No worries.
