Marty,

Yes, the attached jar file is the what you need to install. 

0) Save the NOWRAD.jar file 
 
1) Tools > Plugin Manager

2) File > Install Plugin from file and select the NOWRAD.jar, and ....

When you restart the IDV, in the data source types list, there is a new type 
named: "NOWRAD Reflectivity Data files". You can use this new type when you 
load this kind of dataset.
