    Some are newly installed, some have been around for years, but did not have longline communcations for NADIN/WSMCR transmission prior. It up to the owners of these non-Federal AWOS sites to fund the longline communcation costs so we see the METARs on the data feeds.

    Two New Sites Now Available

    1II - Nineveh IN
    CKF - Cordele GA

    1II is actually 11II but the first "1" was removed so its METARs could be sent over the data feeds as K1II.

    Thanks for posting these, Boris. There are few comments here or at WX-TALK and such but it's appreciated and some of do use the heads up. How many or how often are sites decommissioned?

    Decommissioning of AWOS sites is rather uncommon, but does happen when an airport is closed permanently, as one example. New sites are commissioned often, on a irregular basis but I'd say averaging 4-6 a month. Just b/c they are commissioned does not mean their METARs are available through NCEP. That is up to the owner of the AWOS to fund long line communications on NADIN so the METARs are made available. Right now, there are about 500 AWOS sites that I know of that do not have NADIN service in the U.S.
