Section 5. Computer-Generated NOTAM Service Messages

4-5-1. MONITORING

a. All input transmissions from a facility are monitored by the USNS computer for the presence of an ADP code. The validity of the station identifier, format, and times are also checked before the USNS computer assigns a number and updates the NOTAM master file.

b. Errors in the station identifier or the format will result in a computer-generated service message being sent to the facility of origin. (See paragraph 4񪶮 for examples). The service message will identify the NOTAM parameter which was in error. A rejection (R) requires corrective action as soon as possible.

c. When a NOTAM is rejected, it is not distributed. It will not be stored in the NOTAM master file, and it will not be available by request-reply. Error messages are not stored in the master file.

4-5-2. NOTAM SERVICE MESSAGES

If data is entered incorrectly, it will be rejected. Each rejection will be preceded with a service message (SVC) explaining the cause for the rejection. Below are some examples of the type of reject messages received.

a. Invalid accountability location for a specific affected facility and missing keyword.
