The Monthly Raob Data Report of Manual Quality Control is issued 
as soon as possible after the end of each calendar month.  The 
report is the result of a compilation of entries in the  Senior
Duty Meteorologist (SDM) daily logs during the specified calendar
month with emphasis on entries pertaining to data which were
flagged for deletion.  Raob stations in the North American region
which were most problematic will stand out in this report.

The report divides the North American region (raob blocks 04, 70, 71,
72, 74, 76, 78 and also U.S. supported block 91 stations which include
Hawaii and Pacific island U.S.A. possessions) into two divisions.  
The first comprises the conus U.S.A. (blocks 72 and 74), and the second
comprises all others ((blocks 04, 70, 71, 76, 78, and 91).  For both
divisions, the report provides general quantitative information
followed by a specific list of stations that had more than three
citations during the month.  Also, the author will render statements
pertaining to trends or possible explanations for the more problematic
stations.
