Version 1.41 Âof the GrLevel 3 Radar viewing software. The program uses internet access to the National Weather Service radar dissemination system to download radar data and display it in real time.
Radar display, panning, mouse zoom function, menu functions (see caveats below), warning displays, VAD wind profile, accepts registration code input, multiple tabs with different product types (BREF, SRVEL, etc.). In short, perhaps 85-90 percent of total program functionality is available, with all of the core functionality. Much better than even a few versions ago.
What does not
Two small things appeared not to work:
1) Options under "settings" that are changed, such as setting a different radar to load by default at startup, don't work. The program doesn't seem to remember the user-defined settings.
2) A change to the animation settings under "View" to decrease the zoom level for each mouse step causes a lock-up.
What was not tested
I didn't test the inclusion of shapefiles, placefiles, or color pallettes, because I'm not certain yet how to add external data from my linux desktop.
