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

Hi Elmer,

No worries.  We're glad to help if/when we can.

The Unidata community gets radar products from the NOAAPORT broadcast
operated by the US NWS (NEXRAD Level III in NOAAPORT; Level II from the
NEXRAD2 data distribution system the NWS built using the Unidata LDM) and
from Pelmorex Media Inc, a Canadian company which supplies those few Canadian
radars that are included in the composites.  We (the Unidata Program Center of
UCAR) create composites like the 1 km N0R product using these ** freely 
available **
radar products.  NB: the composites we produce are also freely available.

Even though it is not a requirement for use, we would appreciate using the
products give credit to the providers of the data:

US NOAA Weather Service (formerly know as the National Weather Service)
Pelmorex Media Inc
The Unidata Program Center/UCAR
