I read Chiz's response, so I am up to speed.  Please keep me informed about
what you do since it will affect the setup for McIDAS ADDE, and you agreed
to let papagayo serve the NIDS data through ADDE :-)

OK.  You will undoubtedly want to play with the scouring some.  This will
be especially true if you change how the data is FILEd.

I was trying to ask if you knew that you were requesting data by the
WFO and not by the station.  The main point is that some WFOs issue
products for more than one station.  I don't know if this is true for
the list that you have in place, but I do know that it is true for some
WFOs.  I figured that if you knew exactly what stations you wanted, you
would request them specifically.
