meteorological community under contract from
ARINC, a private-sector firm
whose mention here is for informational purposes only and in no way

- Interface Output from the NCEP ACARS
Decoder - a tabular listing of all of the decoded values available within
the interface format output from the NCEP ACARS Decoder
