Yes, this is correct (although not sorted according to increasing tilt
levels).

re:

No.  Here is the documentation I have been working from:

N0Q  94 RADAR 0.4-0.8 REFLECTIVITY .54NM RES 256 LEVELS ID 94/DR
N1Q  94 RADAR 1.2-1.6 REFLECTIVITY .54NM RES 256 LEVELS ID 94/DR
N2Q  94 RADAR 2.1-2.6 REFLECTIVITY .54NM RES 256 LEVELS ID 94/DR
N3Q  94 RADAR 2.7-3.6 REFLECTIVITY .54NM RES 256 LEVELS ID 94/DR
NAQ  94 RADAR 0.9-1.1 REFLECTIVITY .54NM RES 256 LEVELS ID 94/DR
NBQ  94 RADAR 1.7-2.0 REFLECTIVITY .54NM RES 256 LEVELS ID 94/DR

If listed in order of increasing tilt, the list is:

N0Q  94 RADAR 0.4-0.8 REFLECTIVITY .54NM RES 256 LEVELS ID 94/DR
NAQ  94 RADAR 0.9-1.1 REFLECTIVITY .54NM RES 256 LEVELS ID 94/DR
N1Q  94 RADAR 1.2-1.6 REFLECTIVITY .54NM RES 256 LEVELS ID 94/DR
NBQ  94 RADAR 1.7-2.0 REFLECTIVITY .54NM RES 256 LEVELS ID 94/DR
N2Q  94 RADAR 2.1-2.6 REFLECTIVITY .54NM RES 256 LEVELS ID 94/DR
N3Q  94 RADAR 2.7-3.6 REFLECTIVITY .54NM RES 256 LEVELS ID 94/DR

I _don't_ know why the Weather Service folks decided to label the products
like this; I simply followed their lead.

re:
> These files were sent earlier today but not recently.

I have noticed the same thing: the 'A' and 'B' tilts for various products
are not sent as regularly as the others.  Why?  I don't know.

Cheers,

Tom
