Is there a reason you have `-m 16` set on dcuair?  That sets:

    -m maxtim   Set the maximum number of times

Maybe your data/gempak/upperair/YYYYMMDD_upa.gem file has exhausted available time slots?

Also, you are positive `decoders/dcuair` points to a GEMPAK installation and not something else?

Hi Chris,

Although the LDM version you are running is old (6.13.6 is
current/stable), it shouldn't be doing this. This sounds more like a GEMPAK
issue. What GEMPAK version are you running?

For some time now, our LDM only writes the 0000 UTC upperair data.  The
dcuair log file has a lot of entries like this:

[21755] 170207/1245[DCUAIR 2] INVALID DATTIM: 170205/1200    170207/1745

Our pqact.conf entry looks like this:

# upper air reports
        PIPE    decoders/dcuair -b 24 -m 16
        -d data/gempak/logs/dcuair.log
        -e GEMTBL=/home/gempak/NAWIPS/gempak/tables
        -s snstns.tbl

We are running version 6.10.1 (I know, we need to update).  Did I miss a
change?   Any ideas?
