[THREDDS #CPC-118546]: Meso-SAILS (FN Convention)


Thanks for bringing this to our attention. For the current, operational SAILS 
implementation, the supplemental scans come with the time set for the start of 
the scan, so there is no collision.

For Meso-SAILS, the fastest update time is 62 seconds: 

So, in theory, this should not be a problem. Admittedly, this is a tight 
window, so I think your suggestion of adding the seconds to the filename is a 
good one, if for no other reason than to future proof against any additional 
NEXRAD upgrades.

This could potentially break the thredds radarServer service, which I'm 
actively rewriting, so I'm not inclined to change the file naming until after 
that goes live.

Are there any impacts to you for a change in the filename?
