Yes, but... I went for a month, a little less than a year ago, with very few EPPs coming in (maybe one a week). I was able to use the MDI to get one a couple of times, but it is much more difficult, since the time that EPP, and DPP data arrives varies from city to city, based on the length of the burst. Mine come in around the 30 second mark. The data at the start of the burst is much easier to interrupt since it always happens within a second or two of the 15, and 45 minute mark. The DPPs, and EPPs come in a little more than halfway through. Since the length of the burst varies in each city (mine is about 48 seconds, New Orleans is a little over 30 seconds. I think LA is over a minute), you almost need to be able to log, and analyze the TSReader data to see when they happen. Even with that, I probably attempted it about six or seven times before I finally got one.
