Not that I know of.  In fact, I believe that this is how SSEC runs
their NOAAPORT ingest system.

It should work for XCD as well.

I agree.

Just for interest, what kind of a NOAAPORT reception system do you
have?  How many channels are you getting?

I don't suppose that Universal would allow Unidata sites free ADDE
access to GINI imagery and XCD decoded data, or would you? :-)

Thanks Tom,

We have a two-channel SSEC ingestor getting the GINI sat imagery and
the text/binary.  It's the standard SSEC Gateway PC.  We also have a
Goes-8 GVAR ingestor and possibly a GOES-10 as well.  I'll have to
check on the access..one problem is machine capability..we're pretty
maxed out now and the big firewall everything is behind.  I will
definitely check though.
