Who does this procedure?

Forecasters and Observers

How often?

        Is done when COMMIDDS is not working (maybe 3 or 4 times a month), though some do it this way all the time.

        COMMIDDS versus AFWIN - doesn't matter which is used so long as forecast gets out.

        AFWIN is more reliable.

Frequency of reference to the SOP

Since it is a new SOP, the SOP is referred to regularly, but the procedure is self-explanatory and is not too difficult.
