Re: [gembud] DCLSFC synoptic decoder

Hi James,

Thank you for your reply.  May I ask if your plot contains only 
synoptic reports or it is a mixture of METAR and SYNOP?  I have no 
problems with decoding METARs in SE Asia, but all SYNOP in Philippines 
and Indo-China are missing, and oddly, all SYNOP in China are decoded 
properly.  There are much more SYNOPs than METARs in SE Asia.  May I 
ask if you can zoom in to around the Philippines to confirm if I am 
not seeing just the METAR reports?
