Re: Is the Pirep system broken?

Mitch -- Less than 50% of pireps I give to ATC get into the system (i.e., are retrievable as UAs). I've heard (and perhaps the NTSB hearing will get into this in part) that there is a clunky/unworkable interface for ATC to submit a pirep to the flight service system (landline?). The rate of pireps given directly to FSS going into the system is higher, but still only about 80% in my experience.

Obviously this is low-altitude/FLIB perspective.
