[gradsusr] Issues opening GOES-16 NetCDF files

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for a way to plot some satellite data in GrADS. I've found a source for GOES-16 netcdf data, but its format is not compatible as shown below; the lat and lon are set to the number of grid points in the file, not the lat/lon extent of the file:

ga-> sdfopen OR_ABI-L2-CMIPC-M3C02_G16_s20183111612182_e20183111614555_c20183111615060.nc
Scanning self-describing file:  OR_ABI-L2-CMIPC-M3C02_G16_s20183111612182_e20183111614555_c20183111615060.nc
SDF file has no discernable time coordinate -- using default values.
SDF file OR_ABI-L2-CMIPC-M3C02_G16_s20183111612182_e20183111614555_c20183111615060.nc is open as file 1
LON set to 0 9999
LAT set to 0 5999

I've seen this issue pop up previously on the forum, but there was no good answer I could make sense of. I'm hoping someone could share some code with me to help resolve the issue, or better yet point me to a source of netcdf's that can be read in via the sdfopen command.
