Since I'm not familiar with what 'dwd' is or what satellite broadcast you are talking about (NOAAPort?), I'm not sure what to say except, if GRIB files are WAFS-type, they go in the WAFS directories, else, they go to the NWS directory.

Could you explain in more detail what this data feed is?? I'm curious.

Hello Jeff

I saw the heading of the message and was interested. I don’t use WINGRIDDS, but DA and I receive weather satellites via Eumetcast.
DWD is the Deutsche Wetter Dienst (German Weather Office). Every day I receive via the satellite weather maps, satellite images and also GRIB-files from DWD. I don’t know what type of files they are. I can read them with the GRIBViewer of David Taylor (

If you send me by PM an email address I can send you some examples.
