How can I script the old "Radar Echo Summary" into maps? The download location is no longer listed in the data retrieval window, and I'm not even sure that Digital Atmosphere still supports it.

I would use the new radar selection, but I don't need high-resolution radar data for this particular map.

Alan, are you still looking for the Radar Echo Summary Charts? That map is still available at NWS website. Here's a script to download using DigATMEquinox and auto print using Irfanview (great shareware program). You can't view it with DA but you can download it and print it.

Spawn c:\IrfanView\i_view32 $$5\latestradar.tif /silent /rotate_l /resize_long=2100 /aspectratio /print,,1

Yes, however, I remember this being part of DA. It was the 'old' radar method before individual radar sites were supported.

I use this script.
download,[url],C:\Program[/url] Files\DigitalAtmosphereWS\my_data\rcmRadar.dat
ingest,C:\Program Files\DigitalAtmosphereWS\my_data\rcmRadar.dat

If that is what you are looking for.

Whoa ... wait a minute. Are you getting DAWS to plot RCM radar? I thought that dropped out after DA2000? I tried your script with no errors, but nothing plots.

Post subject:  rcm data

I use this site.
you do need to add a file from an older version of da I think it is DIGATMOS.CCL not sure though.
The download doesn't always give rcm data, I download hourly at at 50 minutes past the hour and that usually gets good rcm data.

download,[url],C:\Program[/url] Files\DigitalAtmosphereWS\my_data\rcmRadar.dat
ingest,C:\Program Files\DigitalAtmosphereWS\my_data\rcmRadar.dat

So how can we fix this? I am also wanting radar data for the US (like Wally is doing), but I'm receiving the same error. Is there another way, or is there a way to download the missing variable to make it work?
Thanks - Mike
