FOMS Screen 468 (Group Alert Monitor Program) is a new program that allows the user to add stations to the Weather Alert Monitor list. This allows the user to monitor added stations, even if they are not associated with a flight.
Use this mode to set up a list of stations to be monitored.
Group Name: Enter the name that you wish to assign to this group. Alerts generated for specified stations will be sent to users logged into NFP who are members of this group.
ALC: Enter the airline code associated with the alert profile specifying the weather alerting conditions you wish to have applied to this group.
ICAO/Type: In the table, indicate the ICAO Identifier (IATA Codes may be entered - they will be converted) and Airport Usage Type for each station that you want to be included in the Group. The <?> Search function may be used to select these entries. You may escape from the table to a field.
