I get the same thing.

IMGLIST: done

Notice that the size of the product is 116x116.  In order to make it the same
size as a "typical" display, one has to blow the image up:

IMGDISP RTNEXRAD/NVL ID=DDC STA=DDC MAG=3 EU=BREF REFRESH='EG; MAP VH; BAR'

A GIF (tm) rendering of this can be seen in:

(unfortunately, there is not much to see in the hour I used for display, but
you should get the idea.)
