Hi Dave, The contents are described at https://www.unidata.ucar.edu/data/lightning/nldn.html I'd ask that you work with unidata to help setup up the IDD LDM software and decoders that work for you. I've cc'd them. When you are ready to start receiving the data, let us know. Preferably from a .edu email address. The IDD machine has to be an .edu computer. Let us know its name, and manager, and we can set you up. Best wishes with your your project.
