If all you are interested in is getting the imagery, then you do not need
McIDAS-X to do so.  Even though Georgia Tech is licensed for McIDAS-X
through Unidata, I don't believe that it has been used there for a number
of years.

As far as getting the imagery in the Unidata-Wisconsin datastream, you
are already receiving them.  The following LDM notifyme command verifies

%notifyme -vxl- -f MCIDAS -o 3600 -h louisxiv.eas.gatech.edu

Also, it looks like you have already downloaded the ldm-mcidas package that
contains the decoder for the imagery in the Unidata-Wisconsin (LDM feed type
MCIDAS) datastream:

So, are you looking for instructions on how to setup your LDM to decode
the images?  If so, please review the information under:



If you really do want to get Unidata McIDAS-X, I will be happy to send
you the access information.  Please let me know.
