I have tried DTN both web service and through the dish and it was worthless. the radar was nice, but the forcast was awefull.<br>In the winter I need real good forcasts, I have switched to a company from Mass called All weather service. They tote a 88% acuracy rating as opposed to about 30% for NWS and fax updates every 6 hrs and more often during storms.<br>Its not cheap, about 300 per month, but it is worth every dime.<br>Dino<p>----------<br> Professional Ice and Snow Management <br>Products:Services:Equipment www.sima.org

Very soon we can expect to begin getting radar inages directly from NWS because all of the contracts with the commercial providers for radar images will expire and the NWS will be releasing these images to the public themselves. This should mean that the present commercial providers (The Weather Channel, Unisys, Accuweather, Intellicast etc.) will be upgrading the product that they provide to the public for free. At present I think the only decent images are provided by Intellicast and the resolution could be better on the images that they provide.
