[IDD #UHR-178326]: idd site list contacts, goes-r realtime

Hi Kelly,

OK, thanks for letting us know.

> Here are our new contacts.

> 850-644-2522
> pluto.met.fsu.edu is still our ldm ingester.

I updated the site contact list page with the new information.


- is address@hidden still a viable email address for downstream
  users to send questions about the feed(s) they are getting/want
  to get from pluto.met.fsu.edu?

  If not, I will remove it from the site administrator list.

OK, thanks for this info.  I see that you CCed Michael on this email, so
we will wait to hear from him as to whether he should be listed as the
LDM/IDD contact for the Center for Ocean-Atmosphere Prediction Studies

Our NOAAPort ingest software was bundled as part of the LDM a few years
ago.  If KTLH's NOAAPort ingest is active, then you should be able to
tap off of the UDP stream from their Novra S300N DVBS2 receiver;
feed it into an Ethernet interface that is dedicated for NOAAPort
ingest on one of your machines; build, install and configure the
NOAAPort component of a current LDM installation; and then once again
be ingesting the data flowing in the NOAAPort Satellite Broadcast
Network (SBN).  If KTLH does not have an active NOAAPort ingest but
you still have a tap into a satellite dish that is pointed at the
NOAAPort satellite, then you would need to purchase a DVBS2 receiver
like the Novra S300N and connect the tap off of the dish to the
input side of the receiver.  From there, the procedure would be
the same as I outlined.

If you do not want to re-enter the NOAAPort ingest "game", and
assuming that your network bandwidth is sufficient, then you
could simply REQUEST all of the NOAAPort-derived IDD feeds that
have the data you are looking for (e.g., IDS|DDPLUS, HDS, NGRID,
NEXRAD3, NIMAGE, NOTHER.  The NOTHER feed contains the GOES-16
imagery that is being sent down as a series of tiles for each
coverage (e.g., FullDisk, CONUS, Puerto Rico, Mesoscale-[12])
currently in the feed.  Your job would then be to stitch together
the tiles into full scenes and use them accordingly.  FYI: the
tiles and the full scenes created from tiles will both be in
netCDF-4 files.  Also, we put together some Python scripts that
can stitch the tiles back into full scenes and make it (along
with a LOT of other things) available in the Unidata area of
