Quite important for me as I have adapted the MLID to serve my own purposes, and added a few stations that are not in the database. I looked at V.3.5 and thought that there was no added value for me, and in fact the m...

Importing a MLID table

Just wondering if anyone has successfully imported an updated MLID location table on V 3.30 and V 3.32
I have been ok up to V 3.20, but since then I just get DA and encountered an error: Range check error.

When I try and restore default table the error is '08/31/1945 is an invalid date and time.

Re: New data source file

Thanks Tim for the updates. I have to admit the relocation of the NWS data files to http://tgftp.nws.noaa.gov/fax/Amaster_index.html caught me out earlier in the year. Just for info the UK/Europe Lightning data disappeared 2008 and the locations http://tgftp.nws.noaa.gov/data/raw/sf/sfuk30.egrr..txt...
