I am attempting to use dcwtch (not dcwAtch) to decode watch boxes from SPC
for use in NMAP2. I have installed GEMPAK 5.10.2 successfully on RedHat
ES 4 and am pulling wwus30 kwns files from NOAA.
What am I missing here? A manual test on the command line via..
dcwtch -c 20070515/1700 -v 25 -d test.log 2007051717.watch <
provides no feedback to the screen (appears to run normally) with the
following output stored in test.log
 070521/1401[DC 3] Starting up. Version 5.10.2
 070521/1401[DC 2] read 501/102399 bytes strt 0 newstrt 501

 070521/1401[DC 2] Number of bulletins read and processed: 0
 070521/1401[DC 6] Shutting down.
_From the help files and the email threads it seems dcwtch is looking for
wous20 or wwus30 text messages (not wwus40)..
am I incorrect? If I am correct, perhaps I using the wrong command line
arguments for dcwtch?
