I have my LDM email me RERs and other interesting text products. Anyway,
it seems that lately I have been getting many duplicate emails. The text
of the products will be the same but the WMO header will be slightly
different. Take, for instance, a SPECIAL NCEP DISCUSSION ADMNFD
# /home/ldm/bin/pqcat -v -l - -f WMO -p "/pADMNFD" > /dev/null

If you look at the product sizes, there are two pairs that are identical.
And there are two products that don't appear to be duplicated.
I dumped two of the products with the same size to a file and diffed them.
# diff one.txt two.txt
< NOUS42 KWNO 101740
> NOUS42 KWNO 101732
Hmmmmmmmmmm. Anybody else noticed this? I have checked a colleagues LDM
and he has the same duplicate products. I also seem to think that other
products are being duplicated as well, but I can't find evidence of it
right now. Maybe it is just something unique about KWNO or I am
Since AWIPS is probably generating the header, maybe there is a problem
there this morning. Anyway....
