Abstract : The Routine Product Set (RPS) is a list of products sent to you each volume scan. The current RPS list is the one actively in use. Adaptation lists are a library of 10 other lists you can create for different weather regimes (clear air, convection close to the Radar Data Acquisition (RDA) site, convection far away, stratiform precipitation or snow, etc.). The RPS list consists of up to 20 products you use most frequently. The products you put on the list are a function of the Volume Coverage Pattern (VCP), weather regime, experience, personal preference and station policy. Keep in mind you must request any product not on the RPS list from the RPG each time it is desired. Therefore, you should include any product used often or desired routinely. Some products, such as custom-built products, are generally not suited for inclusion in an RPS list.
