20020122: 20020118: Source of AIREP data



Pat,

I have the last 30 days of the NOAAPORT products from the DDPLUS
data stream.

I can see if it is possible for me to figure out what report
I have that is comparable to your report.

In looking at the data, it appears that the obs that are 
from flight numbers look to be in lat/lon groups. EG,
ARP KAL002 38N 140W 2105 F340 MS54 010/027KT=

The UB.. reports look to use the waypoints.
