Mark,

The most commonly used reflectivity composites were and remain those
you have to subscribe to from WSI Corporation, the so-called NOWrad (tm)
products.  NOAAPORT does have a 10 km RCM composite available that GEMPAK
can read (I have not written necessary server for McIDAS since I am
waiting for the high resolution product that will eventually be available).

>Could you point me in the right direction?  

If you are looking for the NOWrad products, then you need to subscribe
with WSI.  If you are interested in the RCMs in NOAAPORT, please let
us know and I will pass this along to Chiz.

On another topic.  Is cirrus still a Linux box, or did you reuse the
name for a Sun SPARC machine.  The reason I ask is that I am having
problems in the ADDE server for sounding data on Linux.  The problem
presents itself in both RH 6.x and 7.0, and I am looking to see if
any sites are running a different version and _not_ seeing problems.
I recall that you are/were running Debian, and I can successfully
do sounding plots using ADDE to cirrus.  The only thing I don't know
anymore is whether this is still a Debian Linux box.  If it is, can
you pass along specifics about the OS (kernel rev; C rev; etc)?  Also
if it is no longer a Linux box, can you tell me if you ever ran into
problmes doing Skew-Ts using UAPLOT when accessing the remote server
(remote server meaning a DATALOC for RTPTSRC would point to 
cirrus.lsc.vsc.edu, and not LOCAL-DATA or LOCALHOST).  Thanks in
advance.

Tom

Thanks, I'll talk with WSI before deciding what I want to do.

Cirrus is running Solaris 8 (x86).  Our clients are still running Debian. 
Overall, I've found that our ldm and related applications behave better
and more reliably on Solaris than they did on Linux.

I haven't noticed that problem in the past but that wouldn't be
something I come across very often.  Bill Fingerhut works with McIdas more
closely than I do and would be more likely to have noted a problem with
this.  I'll pass this question along to him as well.
