Telm to Goddard

I am hoping someone else on the -bb will pipe up with the specifics you
need. I am on vacation in the bush in upper Mich and do not have the
software here.
There is a pgm module that you load when AO40Rcv is running. The pgm uploads
your blocks to Goddard. The server looks at incoming data and publishes the
one with a correct control record. It none exist, it will publish a failed
block. You then know that the system is still up. I put up to upload pgm
every time I gather telm for the archive.
Love to have you feeding....
