Hmm... very interesting indeed!

It is interesting that 0Z obs started showing up all of a sudden...

So, the problem is not with the application, WXTLIST, but, rather,
with the server.

Since I am not intimately aware of how your NOAAPORT system is setup to
pass things to the LDM, I don't feel comfortable venturing guesses on
what be messed wrong.

>RAOBRPT finds and displays 00 Z data on omega. It must use different WMO

RAOBRPT runs the more general purpose routine OBSRPT which actually
does the server calls.  You can see the run sequence for OBSRPT by
tacking the DEV=CCC keyword onto the RAOBRPT command invocation:

RAOBRPT 72518 40 DEV=CCC

Looking at the output of this invocation I can see that OBSRPT is
not specifying the WMO header for its search:

% raobrpt.k 72518 40 DEV=CCC
raobrpt.k* Data Set Name = 'RTWXTEXT/UPPERAIR'
raobrpt.k* Number of stations=1 Regions=0 Countries=0 1st time=40
raobrpt.k* ID[ 0]  = '72518'
raobrpt.k* OBSRPT RTWXTEXT/UPPERAIR TRACE=0 OLDEST=2004067 22 FORM=5 1 60 
NPERIOD=9999 SUPPRESS=DONE  ID= 72518
OBSRPT* Data Set Name = 'RTWXTEXT/UPPERAIR'
OBSRPT* Actual Data Set Name = 'RTWXTEXT UPPERAIR'
OBSRPT* select_string[ 0] = 'IDREQ=LIST'
OBSRPT* select_string[ 1] = 'NPERIOD= 9999'
OBSRPT* select_string[ 2] = 'TRACE= 0'
OBSRPT* select_string[ 3] = 'OLDEST=2004067 22:00:00'
OBSRPT* select_string[ 4] = 'ID= 72518'
OBSRPT* RTWXTEXT UPPERAIR IDREQ=LIST NPERIOD= 9999 TRACE= 0 OLDEST=2004067 
22:00:00 ID= 72518
OBSRPT* M0cxreq returns 0 msg_len=96 prtmsg=1
OBSRPT* header length =96
OBSRPT* trying to allocate 480 bytes
OBSRPT* M0obtxread returns 0 with 480 bytes
OBSRPT* Ver =   1  ObType =   3  ActFlg =   1 IDType =   0
OBSRPT* Starting at 2004069 000000Z 120000Z
OBSRPT* Ending   at 2004069 000000Z 120000Z
 ...

So, I would refine my WXTLIST invocatoin to either generalize the
WMO headers specified, or not use them at all.

>We are out of ideas. Do you have any?

I apologize for not being able to dive into this more thoroughly, but
I am doing email support as I get a few minutes here and there while
I am down here in Costa Rica helping folks get a Unidata NOAAPORT
ingest system up and running with the LDM.

Cheers,

Tom

I'll keep an eye on this for clues.

I just ran the original WXTLIST and see 12 Z and 0 Z reports for today
day 069, only 12 Z reports for yesterday 068. Yesterday at this time, 
when I did this the 0 Z reports for 068 were listed !? Might they be
scoured ? We'll have to check this out.

Apparently, but I am still bothered that RAOBRPT works okay and
WXTLIST does not. The 0 Z data must be present on omega for RAOBRPT to
work; it might help to know where the data are located (wmo headers).
I tried DEV=CCC on a RAOBRPT; noted the call to OBSRPT; looked at the
source code, but got lost.

This problem is outside the usual domain of Unidata support, but I
thought you might have an idea or two. We will double check what we can.

Already tried this.

Already tried this too. Using the keyword WMO=U?US with WXTLIST
produced an error message.
Invalid WMO= format specified

When I left out the WMO= and WSTN= keywords, and tried APRO=MAN SGL 
I found data in UMUS from KALY. Searching on each of these did not
list any 0 Z reports. So, I still don't know where the 0 Z reports
are located (headers).

Yes, the Internet does some cool things. Thanks for fittings us in.

The good news is I can find the data I want, I just have to use
plan B. 

Stay well,

Bill

Tom,

I found the 'missing' 0 Z upper air data on our server. :-)

Part of it becomes garbled after roughly one day ? :-(
I would guess that wxtlist was searching on the garbled field in the
original search.
Searching on APRO & ASTN works since these info are still available.

So, now we have to find out why the data is garbled (written over?)  ?
