[gradsusr] Can the grid be thinned before downloading.

Dear Grads users,
I should like to use Hi-Res Rapid Refresh (hrrr) but the resolution of grid points means that download takes much longer than downloading from Rapid Refresh (RAP)
Hrrr http://nomads.ncep.noaa.gov:9090/dods/hrrr res 0.028
RAP http://nomads.ncep.noaa.gov:9090/dods/rap res 0.185 (discontinued); 0.295 (now)
I understand that skip() thins the displays, but (I suppose) the underlying data are all there in full resolution.
My area of interest contains 21,000 grid points, which I estimate is 170,000 bytes per forecast hr;
19 hr would be about 3.2 MB.
This, I think, is impractical for a cell phone connection with a weak signal.
Can the download be thinned?
Thanks for your consideration.
