KPZQ, KAPN, KSLH and KDRM down since last night
« on: June 11, 2024, 09:26:35 AM »
I see that my local METAR station (KPZQ) stopped reporting last night at 10:55 PM, and KAPN stopped at 10:54 PM.

I can also see that KSLH and KDRM stopped at 9:15 PM.

This seems quite unusual. Thoughts on this from anyone? There must be a common cause.

The VHF automatic weather transmitter at 118.125 MHz is still working for KPZQ and is current.

Hey Greg, my KSLH Metar last updated at 10:55 this morning.
My KPZQ is as you stated, last updated last night.
My other reporting stations are all up to date.

Edit:  KDRM is up to date also, last reported today at 10:55am.

You are right, only KPZQ and KAPN are still stuck at last night.

Noticing KPLN down on and off a fair amount in the last month as well.
