[Datastream #ZNQ-179731]: Request for Wind Profiler(FSL2) data for February 4-February 7



Hi Samuel-

For better or worse, the chooser is hardwired for the realtime
data on an ADDE server.

Notice that the times only go back to 00Z which means that the chooser
only looks at the current day's data in position 0.  There is also
no way to specify a dataset other than RTPTSRC.  The only way you
might be able to look at your historical data would be to:

- convert it to McIDAS MD format from netCDF
- install it as the realtime data under RTPTSRC/PROFHOURLY
(or RTPTSRC/PROF6MIN depending on the type of data).

However, I can't guarantee that even then it would work because
the chooser looks for position 0 in the ADDE dataset and that
might not end up giving you the correct day.

You would also not be able to select days other than the last
day in the dataset (or whatever ends up being position 0).

Sorry.
