[LDM #VHT-836868]: WMO Headers: broken links


> I'm in the process of reconstructing my pqact.conf file after a
> software failure several weeks ago, and I'm trying to find information
> about WMO headers for products in various data feeds, including those
> in the WMO group of feeds (IDS, PPS, etc.). Unfortunately, all of the

> might now be hiding this information.
> In Russ Rews' document 
> "http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/staff/russ/met-standards.html
> ", there's a section called "WMO Headers", but the first link there,
> tantalizingly called "Bulletin headers catalog", prompts me for a

Yeah.  Disappearing third-party hyperlink targets are a Real Pain.

We'll do what we can and let you know.
