Hi Wally,

When I go to where you last posted the addresses of the files, the .csv file has the old KT77 id for Presidio instead of KPRS. I didn't check the other new stations. Am I doing something wrong, or did the new id's not get in the .csv file?

Thanks for the updates Wally - much appreciated.

I just noticed some rather cold temperatures in the eastern Atlantic! A Swiss station had a minus sign (W) in the longitude rather than a positive number (E).
Tracked it down to:
06725 Blatten (Loetschental) which is 46 25 14 N 007 49 24 E according to the WMO tables. Hp 1538.15 m

The three offshore platforms in Netherlands waters are also east of Greenwich, all checked with the WMO tables:
06206 F16-A 54 07 00 N 004 00 44 E Hp 27.8 m
06207 L9-FF-1 53 36 52 N 004 57 37 E Hp 30.35 m
06208 AWG-1 53 29 30 N 005 56 30 E Hp 26.5 m
