Message Body only (no heading in the file)
Since the file contains just the message body (no starting, no heading, no ending), it is recommended to set up the File Name Format in a way that it contains the full heading. In any case on input, to enable Moving Weather to compose the heading by itself, the file must contain the heading in one of the two following forms:
TTAA[ii]_CCCC_YYGGgg_[BBB][.xxxxx]
A_TTAAiiCCCCYYGGgg[BBB]_[xxxxx]

In the first case, optional remaining part must be delimited by '.' (dot), in the second case by '_' (underscore).
