As we've noted, AWIPS2 is publicly available now as a beta. But unlike the GEMPAK days when you could grab the open data and convert to GEMPAK format, I'm not seeing this as viable in AWIPS2. What can be done is the following: 1) Install AWIPS2 in a Linux machine, or using VMWare with Windows (similar to how GEMPAK works now) Then 2a) Get your own NOAAPORT dish (expensive) or IDD feed (not possible unless you are at and .edu site) or 2b) Find a EDEX server willing to feed you the data already converted to AWIPS2 format. If we can come up with some 2b's we'll be in good shape. I have mentioned it to AllisonHouse already and they are interested, but don't feel there would be any value with the limited number of people who might use AWIPS2. I said there is a good GEMPAK base and that people would pay some to get AWIPS2 data... So prove me right Any interest?
