>echo $ir_date

>#### Find the VIS AREA file ####
>foreach file ( `ls -1t AREA014? | head -1` )
>  set vis_date=`date -u +%y%m%d%H`
>  mv -f $file ${vis_date}.svi

This code snippit shows that the a change in the number of files being
saved from 4 to 10 should make no difference.  The 'ls -lt' gives a
time sorted list of the files and the 'head -1' takes the one off of
the top of the list (the most recent).  This will result in the same
image regardless of the number of the images you are keeping (1 to 10
anyway; after that the naming convention changes).

These should still work.

>I notice that all the files coming in are in the format AREA1###, none of
>the type AREA0###. Any ideas?

The AREA1### files are the CIMSS products.  These have headers that contain
the 'Q0' time indicator.  The "regular" GOES images contain the 'Q1'
time indicator.  If you are not interested in the CIMSS products, then
you could change your pqact.conf action so they don't get processed:

MCIDAS  ^pnga2area Q1 ...

(the '...' means keep the other stuff you were already using)

Your comment about you getting only the Q0 images doesn't sound right
to me.  What is the name of your LDM host?

A notifyme to onesky.engin.umich.edu shows that it is getting both
types of images:

If this is your machine, then you are getting both kinds of images.  If
this is not your machine, then please tell me its name so I can check
its reception with notifyme (you can too, of course).

>Sorry if I sound sensless.. I dont know the weather stuff to well :) 

No problem.
