[McIDAS #CKP-458079]: Missing marine/buoy data?

Yes.

re:

No.

re:

I haven't tried.

Please compare what you can plot when pointing at adde.ucar.edu versus
pointing at lead.unidata.ucar.edu for RTPTSRC.  The reason for this is
that lead.unidata.ucar.edu is running a much newer version of McIDAS-X
and -XCD, so there may be bugs that have been fixed there.  The reason
that adde.ucar.edu is running an older version of McIDAS is that McIDAS=X/-XCD
is no longer supported under Solaris, and adde.ucar.edu and atm.ucar.edu
are both running Solaris 10.  Both machines will be converted to running
CentOS 6.x in the coming weeks/months, and at that point, they will be
able to run current versions of McIDAS-X/-XCD.

re:
> Thank you again,

No worries.

Cheers,

Tom
