Edits.  Once the process is finished, you should be able to view the effect in the RH plot.  Do not edit more than one minute of data as this will cause it to be deleted.

Smoothing the data is often a best-guess process.  You can always add more points to be smoothed.  To undo the edits, highlight the maroon points by clicking and dragging over them.  They should turn black.  Right-click and select Apply User Edits.  This will revert them to their original values.

D. CODED MESSAGES

At 400mb, the FZL (RADAT) is generated and the “WMO Coded and Radat Message Display” window will appear (Figure 3.1).  NOTE THAT A FLIGHT MUST REACH 400hPa IN ORDER TO BE A LEGAL FLIGHT.  IF THE BALLOON DOES NOT REACH 400hPa, A SECOND RELEASE MAY NEED TO BE PERFORMED.  SEE CHAPTER 5 FOR PROCEDURES ON A SECOND RELEASE.

Before sending any coded messages, take a look at the “Check Messages” window for any problems.

Click the check mark next to Audible Alert to disable the alarm.  Using the left mouse button, double-click in the square next to FZL.  A red check mark will appear in the box.  Click on the “Transmit” button.  A message should appear in the window that says, Selected messages have been transmitted.”  Click the “Close” button.  Note that if you do not close the coded messages window, it will not pop up and sound an alarm when the next coded messages are ready.
