Great work on the ver.1.0m release. Happy to see more buoys plot. My request is, could you please implament the C-MAN stations to plot?

Viewing the raw data file these reports are under heading SXUS20, SXUS21, SXUS22, SXUS23 . Thet are also listed in the OUTPUT.sfc and QUEUE.syn files. The C-MAN code is different compared to the ship and buoy synoptic code, could this be a issue? See below.



Below is a list of Moored Buoys and C-MAN stations (costal marine automatic network). Most of the c-man stations are not listed in the STN file.



Thank you,

Skyspotter
