Notice to all WMO Regional Association IV Member States and ISCS/GIFS Users

Effective 01 September 2014; the ISCS/GIFS file naming format for bulletin 
messages will be revised to include the Advanced Weather Interactive Processing 
System (AWIPS) identifier (ID) added to the end of the file name.  Example of 
the change in the file naming format is as follows:

Operational format for file names:  TTAAii_CCCC_ddhhmm[_BBB]

Revised format with AWIPS ID:    TTAAii_CCCC_ddhhmm[_BBB][_NNNXXX]
 

An ISCS/GIFS test web page (https://gifsestage.weather.gov/data/RMTN/)
has been made available for users to evaluate the revised GIFS file naming 
format on their workstations or computer systems.  The new GIFS file naming 
format for bulletin messages will become operational on 01 September 2014. The 
current GIFS file naming format will no longer be offered. Please contact the 
ISCS Program office or your workstation/computer system provider if you have any
questions regarding this change. 

FOR FOS/NOAAPORT AND NON-AWIPS CUSTOMERS - IF YOU HAVE ANY
QUESTIONS REGARDING DISTRIBUTION OR WOULD LIKE TO ADD THESE
PRODUCTS TO YOUR DATASTREAM PLEASE CONTACT DATA MANAGEMENT.
