[McIDAS #DXH-400982]: AREA max number limitation

Hi Mary Ellen,

No worries.

Excellent!  I thought that would work.

Just to be clear:

- I stopped updating the Unidata McIDAS releases at 2009 because the
  changes being made to McIDAS are almost 100% "maintenance mode"
  modifications, which, in my mind, are nothing more than addenda.

  I do update the Unidata McIDAS addendum indicator.  The current
  Unidata McIDAS-X/XCD release is v2009h.  I am currently working
  on incorporating all SSEC v2011.1 modifications/additions to
  Unidata McIDAS v2009i.  I hope to have this release ready by
  the beginning of next week.

Hmm... I am surprised by the failure of IMGREMAP!  I was under the impression
that the only modifications for GOES-15 were calibration coefficients embodied
in the GVAR servers, gvaradir/gvaraget; in the AREA server module kbxgvar.dlm;
and in the source number (SATANNOT, SATBAND) info.

Again, I am surprised by the inability to IMGREMAP imagery from GOES-15.
Just so you know, I am _not_ experiencing this problem.

I think that it would be a good move to re-join the MUG so you can get
your McIDAS code fully updated.


- which ingestors are in danger of failing?

> Thanks for your thoughts and hope you are enjoying this holiday season!

No worries, and you too!
