Quality ATTRIBUTE ACCURACY REPORT: The WSR-88D is a very complex system. Program modifications and engineering changes are rather constant features during the phase-in and upgrade processes. Special care must be taken to ensure that illegal configurations do not contaminate any summaries or statistical studies.
