OK.  The original format was also a simple binary, but not compressed.

If you did (and I am not saying that you didn't), I don' remember the

SUNYA is the group that has the relationship with Vaisala, not Unidata.

Right.  Same is true for McIDAS.

It was good to "talk" to you.  Please dig me up if you ever get to Boulder!
We can go out for a beer or two...
