I strongly recommend Allison House. I have a $10..00 per month subscription which gets me level3 radar and much much more including the lightning placefile. A few days ago when everyone was having problems with the NWS radar servers Allison House never missed a beat. I think I missed one 10 minute update during that week. You can't go wrong.

I second that motion. USPLN works well but there is a noticeable delay between the actual strokes and their display in GRLevel3.

I am not aware of any outages since I subscribed to Allison several months ago.

I too have the $10/mo feeds and really like them.  Highly recommended!

I would get it if I could.... if only for the more reliable radar feeds. NOAA has had lots of small hiccups since I started using GRLevelX and one very very major one.

Thanks for your responses everyone.  I will likely go with it then.  Just came indoors from shoveling a few inches of snow.  Unfortunately for my abode in the southern Dayton area, sleet has mixed in with the snow :(
