20010228: RUC and decoders



Tom,
Your pqact pattern is wrong. A RUC pattern is shown on:
http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/packages/gempak/tutorial/pqact/decoders.tbl
as:
HRS     ^[YZ].[Q].*/mRUC

The problem with your pattern is that you are specifying KWBC. However,
only the f000 grids are KWBC. The distribution center being used for all the
forecast hours of the RUC is KWBG. 

You could use KWB. or KWB[GC] or just wildcard the entire thing
as the dcgrib example does.
