HIMAWARICAST
A secondary source of Himawari data comes in via the Himawaricast. 
Data from Himawaricast contain only bands 3-16 and all bands are at 1/2 of the resolution of the primary source. 
 
Users must be running at least McIDAS-X 2016.1 to use the data on their local workstations. 
 
The Himawaricast is a slower data stream so all bands from the most recent image may not be immediately available.
