I've been working through some level III issues, and in order to ensure
accuracy have decided to upgrade my radome integrity checks for each
tdwr and wsr-88d product that comes over noaaport... in doing so i've
noticed two things so far.
1. JAN is still listed in nexrad.tbl but has been out of service for
awhile, replaced by DGX
2. LPLA (Lajes Field, Azores) is listed as active, but is not showing up
over noaaport? VCP status shows as unknown... so is it live and just not
over noaaport, or is it memorex?
Anybody have insight on this one?
I've automated a radar status for both TDWR and WSR-88D... it's free and
open to the public if anyone would like to use it...
