Apparently someone did notify them? This came through today:
ON MONDAY, NOVEMBER 18 AT APPROXIMATELY 19 UTC,
THE NWS WILL BE RESTORING THE CORRECT FORMAT
TO PRODUCTS WHICH HAVE SECOND COMMUNICATION
HEADING LINES OF LESS THAN 6 CHARACTERS.
ACCORDING TO NWS COMMUNICATIONS HEADER POLICY,
IF THE SECOND LINE OF THE COMMUNICATIONS HEADER
IS LESS THAN 6 CHARACTERS, THE SECOND LINE WILL
BE PADDED WITH SPACE CHARACTERS TO FILL THE SECOND
LINE OUT TO 6 CHARACTERS. FOR EXAMPLE, IN THE STATE
WEATHER ROUNDUP PRODUCT FOR NEW MEXICO WHICH IS WMO
HEADER ASUS45 KABQ, THE SECOND LINE OF THE PRODUCT
SHOULD READ "SWRNM ". A RECENT UPGRADE TO THE NWS
SOFTWARE WAS NOT PROPERLY PADDING THE SECOND LINE
WITH SPACE CHARACTERS IF REQUIRED.

IMPLEMENTED AT ALL OFFICES WHICH ARE RUNNING AWIPS
