Did you get all the other KLTS times I mentioned?

You must have more than 1 request line. Fron the IDS|DDPLUS stats, I see
weather2 feeding from idd.unidata.ucar.edu and weather3,
while weather3 is feeding from flood-0.atms.uiuc.edu, idd.aos.wisc.edu,
and idd.unidata.ucar.edu.

Since you are feeding from multiple locations, we need to make sure your request
lines match on all three, so that one is not a subset.

Where did you post the ldmd.conf file or request lines?

Check for any reconnections in that 8Z time range.

I think we can focus on the pqact.conf at this point, since if your FILE action 
didn't FILE the KLTS products, then you probably didn't get the data into your 
(so the pqsurf won't se it either). Your latency looks fine, so my thought 
would be that
you are skipping over some products if your request lines have some 
when reconnects happen.

Since I received the products here, we know that they were in the IDD from
