Its a great set of data!

I interpret the LEODATA.CORE entry commentary to mean that one needs
to provide NAV information also.  Since I have not used the LEO command
(lack of access to polar orbiter data), I will send Russ Dengel a
note asking him about what is needed or not (Russ is the author of LEO).
I will get back to you when I hear back from Russ...

I have access to PLR on SATEPSDIST4E.NESDIS.NOAA.GOV.  Is this the
same ADDE server you are using?

I see that MOS is served off of SATEPSDIST6E.NESDIS.NOAA.GOV:

I took a look at the 8 km channel 4 IR Atlantic composite and
see what you mean about the visual mismatch between the sectors
that have been stitched together.


- do you need a high resolution composite image?

I ask since NOAAPort contains a couple of 24 km composite images that
may be of immediate use:

The GINICOMP/GMC24KIR images look they could be of some use.
