ftp with NOMADS site

Andy; Thanks for the tip, I'll have to try the Filezilla program. I did a search and found their site, but the 17MB download will take more time than I can give it until the weekend. Is the WAFS data available anywhere else? I have never tried to use it, so I'm totally unaware of where to get it, ho...

FTP download problems

I have been having a problem with ftp'ing data from the NOMADS site for some time now. I stopped using my copy of PCGRIDDS 32 since the only data that I could get was http, but the file sizes were too huge. A 105MB file would take so long for me to download with a 26kbps dial up that the predicted w...

Professional version maps

Dear Bob, Thank you very much for the tip. I uninstalled the registered version on my computer, and reinstalled the professional version. After restart, the Professional title was displayed, and all the maps were available. The maps make Nexrad data much more valuable to me. Thanks again for the tip...

Professional version maps

I seem to be having a problem with the professional version of DAWS, specifically in the map section. When I try to make a detailed map with the included map files, an error message pops up stating that map tiles outside of the New York area are only available in the Professional version. That is wh...

Grib data and importing

I just checked my version of DAWS this morning (04-18-05 05:22a) and imported a grib file for forcast hour 24 of the data set for 04-16-05. The data plotted just fine. Are you importing more than one forecast hour at a time? This might be the source of the problem. I used the 211 grid for the NAM mo...

Satellite images in DAWS

An additional note: I have gotten satellite images to display correctly in DAWS without using GeoSatSignal, by downloading the 1200x896 pixel images from UCAR. However, all the analysis functions work fine except for the vorticity analysis (both absolute and relative), and the divergence function. W...

Satellite images in DAWS

Greetings: Does anyone have any experience in using GeoSatSignal images in DAWS? I have the GeoSatSignal program up and running (nice work by the way) and I have heard about the .dmf files available from Meteo Maarssen. Unfortunately, when Tom Lindemann graciously tried to e-mail them to me, Hotmail...
