Environmental data messages use coded MANOP headings to facilitate the
rapid automatic switching of the information at the AWN Automated Weather Data
Switch (AWDS), as well as to provide recognition of the data contents. Refer to
Chapter 1 of this module for a discussion on the format of MANOP headers.
