End of life for QuickScat

The QuikSCAT nominal mission ended on November 23, 2009.QuikSCAT was launched in 1999 and was already operating 7 years beyond its design life.
There is still ocean surface vector wind data from the European ASCAT system which provides a partial mitigation for QuikSCAT
You can find out more about ASCAT on this page.
On the spur of the moment I tried an email request to for an ascat grib, using the same format as for a qscat request.
send ascat:5N,30N,70W,30W|2,2|24,48|WIND
but had no response.

Does anybody know a public source for ascat gribs?
