It should be straightforward when you know the list of stations that you

AWIPS can create a composite by displaying the same product for multiple 
but I am not sure that is what you are remembering from your NWS days.  As I
recall, NWS sites had access to composites created by UNISYS, but those products
were not ** I think ** sent in the NOAAPort SBN.  The Level 3 products we are
distributing in the NEXRAD3 feed come from the SBN and it does not contain
the composites you are remembering.  We create composites for a number of
the Level 3 products and distribute those in the IDD FNEXRAD feed, but those
composites do not include Alaskan radars.

Aside: the composites we send in the IDD FNEXRAD feed are created using
GEMPAK, so it would be possible to create your own composite using
GEMPAK.  Just an FYI...

> Thanks so much for your help.

No worries.
