[IDV #IID-453837]: Add radar station to radar list from Linux machine



> Hello.

Hi Sergio,

You should be able to find a hidden folder named .unidata in your home 
directory and adding the station should
be the same as Window environment.

Ok, we will consider your suggestion in our development.
