I am a beginner of MET, and I encountered the following problem while
running pb2nc.

Here is the error message I got:

/home/kayee/METv1.1 126> bin/pb2nc \
data/2000_obs/prepbufr/obs.20000726/gdas1.t00z.adpsfc.tm00.bufr_d \

Processing 40869 PrepBufr messages...

ERROR: process_pbfile() -> the observation time should remain the same for
all PrepBufr messages: 964562400 != 964558800

Do you know why I get this error? I don't know how prepbufr time center is

I hope someone can help, thanks a lot!
