[Support #EDS-330074]: RE: Need to obtain upstream data-feeds for Radar data

Hi George,

I just noticed that your email of the 16th had not been replied to from someone
here in Unidata.  I apologize for our very late response!

Are you associated with RAL in your WxDE effort?  If yes, they would be the
logical group to provide NEXRAD2 and/or NEXRAD3 feeds to you.

The instructions for installing an LDM are available online at our website:

We need some additional information:

- if you are not associated/working with RAL (and so can not get LDM/IDD
  feed from them), we will need to know where you are physically located
  so that we can determine which site may work best as an upstream for
  NEXRAD data.

- which radar data are you interested in?

  The choices are:

  - Level II (IDD feedtype NEXRAD2)
  - Level III (IDD feedtype NEXRAD3)

  Level II is full volume scan data; Level III are products created from
  the Level II data at NEXRAD PUPs.

- which radar stations are you interested in receiving?

- the ALLOW mechanism in the LDM relies on there being both forward
  and reverse DNS for the downstream machine.  Please proceed on
  getting this setup in advance of being assigned an upstream feed

> Your prompt response will be greatly appreciated.

Again, I apologize for the slowness in our reply.
