I did the upgrade to get the latest version of DROUTE.BAT. o made a new ROUTE.SYS from the DROUTE.BAT template included in McIDAS-X v2002 The problem with your GOES-East/West compositing was most likey due to ROUTE.SYS being corrupt. It got corrupt from you receiving a Unidata-Wisconin product for which it was not setup. The reason you were getting the Unidata-Wisconsin image was due to your upstream host, papagayo.unl.edu, getting the test Unidata-Wisconsin stream from unidata2.ssec.wisc.edu instead of the operational Unidata-Wisconsin stream from gold.ssec.wisc.edu. This situation has been corrected. My upgrade of the ldm-mcidas decoders and ROUTE.SYS has you ready to go when the new images are added to the non-test Unidata-Wisconsin stream. New Unidata-Wisconsin products will no longer damage the McIDAS routing table; this was the main reason for the ldm-mcidas update. Also, the clock on waldo was not being set, so the latencies being reported for receipt of products was off (by ~160 seconds). I added the running of /usr/sbin/ntpdate in 'root's crontab and sent a note to the University of Minnesota group that provides the service (as per their request). Your clock should now stay consistent and insure that your data ingestion by LDM works correctly. As I end this note, I thing all things are working on waldo. Please let me know when you are ready to have McIDAS-X v2002 installed and working. Tom
