[ldmMcidas #XGX-360555]: decoding FNEXRAD 1 km N0R composite images

Hi Elmer,

First, I apologize if you got multiple responses on receipt of your email.
I was moving the request into a different department, and got a couple of
hiccups from the system.

No.  The 1 km N0R composite in the FNEXRAD feed is a PNG-compressed GINI
image, not a PNG-compressed AREA image.  Instead of 'pnga2area' you should
be using the LDM-McIDAS decoder 'pngg2gini'.
