Is anyone else seeing a constant stream of rebroadcast Nids data today? We are

Hi Matt,

I saw that, and it seems like they fixed it late yesterday. Every now and then, one of their regional LDM servers freaks out. (Note to UNIDATA:
maybe you could make a subtle hint to NWS to update their LDM's
to 6.10.2, whenever that next release comes out?)

Is there a good way to tell LDM to ignore these? I tried a -m switch, but it 
does not seem to be doing any good.

No, not really. The problem comes from the fact that the time stamp is
current on the header. The time within the product is not. The real
issue is to fix it at the source. And it looks like they did.
