It’s a US Gov’t site (NASA): cddis.nasa.gov. I’m accessing data on their Space Geodesy Data archive, pulling files from directory archive/gnss/products/ionex. I filed an initial complaint with them yesterday before I knew in detail what was going on and had a response asking for more info this morning. I’ve sent them everything I know, but have heard nothing back. That was just this morning, so it’s too soon to be getting antsy about a response from them.
