[McIDAS #GSF-247602]: METEOSAT ADDE server contact



Hi again Greg,

A few things:

- the EUMETSAT ADDE server does _not_ have METEOSAT-7 data

  The email I used to contact EUMETSAT User Services to get temporary
  access to the ADDE server that has METEOSAT-7 data is:

  address@hidden

  Way back in December of 2007, I got the following back regarding a
  request I had for temporary access to their ADDE server for students
  in a McIDAS training course I was putting on at CPTEC (Cacheoira Paulista,
  Brazil):

  Dear Tom

  I am sorry to have to inform you that as the data offered on the ADDE
  service is licensed data, for your continued access to the data you
  will need to have a license in place with our Legal Department.

  As you have been and continue to be heavily involved with the testing
  of the service and you represent Unidata, we feel that the best licence
  for you would be a manufacturer license.

  Can you please complete and fax us a copy of the below form as soon as
  possible, our fax number is +49 6151 807 379

  
http://www.eumetsat.int/idcplg?IdcService=GET_FILE&dDocName=pdf_reg_08_manufacturer&RevisionSelectionMethod=LatestReleased

  The license is free of charge and is just a Legal Formality, in section
  B2 can you please indicate that the data would be received by ADDE

  On the bright side, the license would also cover you for EUMETCast of
  you so wish it.

  I am sorry for the inconvenience and if you have any questions, please
  dont hesitate to ask.

  Best regards

  Debbie Richards

- I found that the NOAA ADDE server of the PUB dataset, 
SATEPSANONE.NESDIS.NOAA.GOV,
  has some (6-hourly) METEOSAT-7 data:

- I also found out that the NOAA restricted ADDE server, 
SATEPSDIST6E.NESDIS.NOAA.GOV,
  has half-hourly, realtime METEOSAT-7 data:

  So, it looks like you need to get access to SATEPSDIST6E.NESDIS.NOAA.GOV.

  I just sent off a note to a contact in NOAA to see who you should
  contact to get access to SATEPSDIST6E.NESDIS.NOAA.GOV.  I will update
  you with the information when I get a reply.

Cheers,

Tom
