[McIDAS #WML-273884]: GLMDISP in v2018



Hi Mike,

Excellent, and I apologize for not officially releasing Unidata McIDAS v2018.
It seems that every week I've been tweaking/adding things, and it never seemed
ready. :-(

I was advised by SSEC that changes to the GLM commands should be expected
as new things are added and bugs/deficiencies are fixed.

I will need to look into the code to answer this.  Hopefully, I can send
you something concrete either this weekend or early next week.

I am the correct person to ask :-)

No GOES-17 products are being relayed in the IDD yet.  The reason is that
we honoring NOAA's request/directive to not redistribute the data until
it has been "blessed" (in spite of their distributing GOES-17 ABI imagery
in NOAAPort).  As soon as we get notification from NOAA that is OK to
distribute GOES-17 products (this is coming up sometime in the beginning
of December), I will flip the switch and all of the GOES-17 products
being ingested in the GRB will be added to the SATELLITE (aka DIFAX)
IDD feed.  At the same time, the ABI images and GLM L2 products will
become available via ADDE and TDS on two of our data servers, 
atm.ucar.edu and lead.unidata.ucar.edu.

re:
> Thank you,

No worries.
Cheers,

Tom
