line represents a daily record. Each daily record is 29 characters long with
the following fixed format:


SSS is the same as the WOUDC Platform ID (position 1-3)
YYYY is year (position 4-7)
MM   is month (position 8-9)
DD   is day (position: 10-11)
HH   is the start hour of the observation - rounded to whole number where required (position 12-13 - may be blank)
GG   is the finish hour of observation (if HH value is given) 
     OR either the representative hour of observation OR number of Observations; rounded to whole number where required (position 14-15)
L    is wavelength pair - typically AD pair for Dobson/Microtops coded 0, coded 8 for Filter instruments and coded 9 for Brewer instruments) (position 16)
S    Observation type - typically Direct Sun (DS) coded 0, typically Focused Moon (FM) coded 1, typically Zenith Cloud (ZS) coded 2 or 4,
