Incorrect fetch for station EKCH ???

Recommended Posts

During my last flight I noticed that a weather fetch for my destination airport (EKCH) returned a METAR from station ETNL. The TAF seems to be OK though. Is this something at my end? I am running latest builds of AS2004 and FSUIPC with standard settings. See screenshot for an example:http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/109654.jpgThanks for any suggestion!

Hi,Using custom fetch, it will return the airport ID's closest valid METAR reports (separate for METAR, TAF, Winds). In this case EKCH didn't have a valid report, so it is reporting the closest one to it, ETNL. The TAF WAS included in the report, however, as shown..This can be due to temporary lag/delay/error in the station's METAR output (from the actual station).Best,

OK, thanks Damian. It indeed was temporary. At this moment an EKCH fetch is reported as I would expect. Thanks for the explanation and sorry to bother you with a temporary issue... :-)
