Re: [ldm-users] 20090318: MMM (Missing METAR Mystery)

Here's the smoking gun from our logs, confirming that the errant bulletin was flagged as a binary file with the feedtype set to HRS:

Mar 17 23:58:41 cascade pqact[11540] INFO: 3731 20090317235409.703 HDS 83649598 SAUS80 KWBC 180000

We split our pqact's into separate files according to the feedtype, so I'll just add in a rule that will hopefully catch these strays the next time this happens. ______________________________________________________________________

On a whim I downloaded the 23Z hrs file from motherlode. I found the missing report. The first metar has an errant character so the report was interpreted as being binary and set the feedtype as HRS.

That is very interesting! So, I had better fix my various pqact files to be sure to use WMO in the case of when a product shows up in the HRS feed...

As an aside, anybody else noticing an increase in the number of stray control characters showing up in various text products? The ADMNCF has had it a bunch lately. I have also noticed the "\'" string showing up in products too :(
