I think that your problem would go away if you separated the two days
of observations into separate source files.  Files with days/times
that increment for individual stations seems to be beyond the
capability of both txt2md.k and upctx2md.k.  It seems to me that
a simple shell script could be written to easily separate the obs for
different days into different in put files.

Cheers,

Tom
