Subject: [gembud] Synoptic Data source

Hi,

I'm looking for a good source for synoptic surface data.  I've been trying to 
use the files available at http://weather.admin.niu.edu/data/, but I keep 
getting errors with dclsfc:

[8515] 140725/0228[LS -3]  Bad group length - reject rest of report: 521 SMMX01 
 MXBA    250600

Something that is in a format that's ready to be pushed through dclsfc would be 
great... or already in gempak format would be even better!

Thanks,
