As a follow-up to this, the RIDGE program was run as a national update 
to the rather dreary black-background screns of long use.  Lots of users 
had asked for prettier pictures, and SRH, in concert with the North 
Central Texas Council of Governments, and their GIS efforts, came up 
with a way to do this.

RIDGE will become the national standard, and all Regions will refer to 
the RIDGE images.  Similarly, the core radar.weather.gov is supposed to 
switch, too.  There have been afew delays as some of the users don't 
want all of the overlay images loaded and not all the pertinent users 
want to use a java applet, either.

I should hear more on this, and I'll try to post a link to an NWS 
presentation made by Ken Waters from the Pacific Region Headquarters, 
who is a team member, for the folks at Southern Region (SRH) who weren't 
able to travel to the recent American Meteorological Society meeting.

So... radar times, they are achanging, and we may have to seek some 
alternate sites.  I'll try to keep the group aprised of the official 
changes I hear of.

Since I'm doing most of my own radar processing, and not looking at 
RIDGE, I have to get these as official notices rather than discovering 
them myself!
