Here is an updated station file. It contains new stations and newly updated IDs and completed data for Boone NC.
The new station tables raw file had a slight format change, so only use this with DAWS.
Back up your digatmos.stn file first. Then put in main folder. RECOMPILE TABLES as found in FILE menu.
Use at your own risk - but there really shouldn't be any, esp. if you backed up your original.

NOTE: This is just a user created modification/update. It is not particularly sanctioned by Tim. However, these stations will not plot unless you use this file.

Go here to get file (click with SHIFT or whatever to save to disk):
http://www.weatherroanoke.com/digatmos.stn

In an undying effort to keep station info updated, I've added the following stations to the digatmos.stn file already updated as mentioned above.

NOTE: This is just a user-created modification/update. It is not particularly sanctioned by Tim. However, these stations (over 50 now) will not plot unless you use this file.

For DAWS ... get file from:
http://www.weatherroanoke.com/digatmos.stn


(Hold shift or alternate when clicking, depending on your browser - follow instruction in first post)

Granbury TX*
Edinburg TX*
Hearne TX*
Hillsboro TX*
Kremmling CO
Fort Payne/Isbell AL
Menomonie WI
Hebron NE
Cullman AL
Rockingham NC
Canton/Cherokee GA
Kill Devil Hills NC

The KOAX - old entry for the Mexican station is removed.

April 23, 2004 additions:
Seminole TX*
Port Lavaca TX*

Also made the correction with KCMH for location.

* denotes ID letters update

Again, this is only for DAWS not any previous version of DA.

If you want the latest version for DA click...
http://www.weatherroanoke.com/DAdigatmos.stn
then rename to digatmos.stn and follow recompile directions.

Tomahawk, WI
Carrituck, NC*

Again, with prior additions, none of the new or changed stations will PLOT unless you use this file. Recompile as mentioned in prior posts.

Ok ... time for a new update. They are still changing a lot of stations over to pure alpha characters.

Here's what's updated in this file (plus the huge additions listed in earlier posts):

Gatesville, TX*
Rocksprings, TX*
Sulphur Springs, TX
Waupaca, WI
Pinedale, WY
Glasgow, KY
Tracy, MN
New Smyrna Beach, FL
De Ridder, LA

* - means just a change in letters (but old alphanumerics WON'T plot)

File is here...
http://www.weatherroanoke.com/digatmos.stn

Follow instructions in previous post.

I'm working on an equivalent update for the older DA2000. Coming soon!

UPDATE: Here it is. Download, RENAME to digatmos.stn, put in DA directory, and RECOMPILE TABLES. (Do NOT use this in DAWS, this is for DA2000 only).

I had to modify file to take Bridgeport TX out, for it was reporting totally bad data and thus messing up analyses. If this is causing problems for you, then...

Download

for DA Workstation.
