Some promising number from the 0 and 12 Z AVN runs for 2000121:

So, one of three possibilities exist for the current decoding success:

o the version of dmgrid.k from stratus.al works better than the one
  built on psnldm

o psnldm getting fed from wxmcidas works better than other feeds

o there has been less volume in the IDD so that RECLASS messages
  indicating loss of data are not seen

In any case, I must conclude that the decoding of grids by XCD is
working correctly.  This fits with your last communication:

>ldmd.log when these partial grids occurred.  My usual problems.
>Is a T1 really not a fat enough pipe?

As the amount of gridded data in the IDD increases, the size of the pipe
needs to increase IF one wants to get all of the data all of the time.
This problem will be magnified even more when we begin increasing the
volume of image data in the Unidata-Wisconsin datastream.

>Does everyone else have multiple T1's or T3's?

No, but some have them have chosen to decide on which data they request
from their upstream site(s).  I must add quickly, however, that there
are several sites with just your prediciment.

>The other problem is the routing to any feed
>I have tried is always circuitous.


>So it looks like it is decoding correctly.

I concur.

>Maybe I will get a clean feed tonight and will see for sure.

You did, and we did.  This makes me breath a sigh of relief.
