              1 HydrolevelPressure Real The pressure of the level to where the sounding passes the hydrostatic check.
              1 LaunchElev Real Elevation from station history in meters
              1 LaunchLat Real The station latitude in degrees and minutes. The last character is "N" or "S" as appropriate. When unknown, this field contains "9999N".
              1 LaunchLon Real The station longitude in degrees and minutes. The last character is "E" or "W" as appropriate. When unknown, this field contains "99999E".
              1 LevelCount Real none
              1 MaxwindlevelPressure Real the pressure of the level having the maximum wind in the sounding. If within the body of the sounding there is no "8" level then MXWN is estimated.
              1 RecordDate Real Date of the sounding
              1 Tropolevelpressure Real The pressure of the level containing the tropopause. If within the body of the sounding there is no "7" level, then TROPL is estimated.
