Rick- As Yuan points out, the file is a UF format file, not a DORADE. However, it could be that she tried to open it using the "DORADE Radar files" Data Source Type which would not work with the UF format. She should use the "NEXRAD Radar files" type (for now) since that will handle NEXRAD, DORADE and UF. I just checked in a change so that the "DORADE Radar files" source type will not show up in the list (since it has been superceded by the other reader) and have changed the "NEXRAD Radar Files" to be "Radar Files (NEXRAD/DORADE/UF)".
