This is what you would expect.  One would never be expected to comment
on data that can be found.

I don't think so.  I just did the same listing on adde.ucar.edu (which
is getting everything that there is to get) and I get the same lack
of FOUS51 products.

>The command being used is: WXTLIST WMO=FOUS5? WSTN=KWNO NUM=5

This is the command that I issued (except that I specified NUM=100).
I also got reports for all FOUS5 bulletins except for 51.

Since we log every product that comes in on NOAAPORT, we (Chiz actually)
were able to check to see if we had received any FOUS51 KWNO messages
in the last 5 days.  We have not.  This means that these bulletins are
not in NOAAPORT, so we should not expect to be able to list them with
WXTLIST.  Sorry for the bad news.
