[IDD #VHL-425950]: GOES-16 Data Request

> To whom this may concern,

Hi Ryan, 

Apologies for the slow response...

Yes, that is correct, the Unidata Program Center feeds only educational and 
research organizations. We cannot feed .coms currently.

Exceptions can be made if there is a tangible benefit of doing so to the 
Unidata community at large.

Other IDD sites are allowed to feed non educational or research organizations 
non proprietary data (i.e. GOES East), and these arrangements would need to be 
set up personally.

The Unidata Program Center is capable of feeding .coms for a fee. If you would 
like to discuss that option, we can explore it further.

Wish we could just feed everyone, but we do not have the resources to do so.

Hope this helps clarify the situation,
