GOES Rebroadcast (GRB) provides the primary relay for full resolution, calibrated, near real-time direct broadcast of imager, lightning mapper, space environment, and solar data captured aboard GOES-16 and future GOES-R series satellites. To support the direct broadcast community's use of GRB, the CSPP Geo team has developed and distributed CSPP Geo GRB: a free and open-source software package that can create easy-to-use NetCDF-4 and FITS files from the GRB stream. We report on the capabilities of CSPP Geo GRB, the opportunities and challenges presented by this new data source, and provide information for users interested in receiving and processing this direct broadcast data stream.
