... NWS Raleigh WSR-88D Doppler radar (krax) has data quality
issues with dual pol products...

The NWS Raleigh WSR-88D Doppler radar (krax) suffered a failure
on a rotary joint that is causing issues with dual pol radar
products. While dual pol products are being created, the quality
of those products is suspect. At this time, we do not recommend
using dual pol products from krax until the issue is resolved.

Technicians have visited the radar have identified several parts
that need to be replaced. We are awaiting the delivery of parts,
some of which are on back order, to complete the repair. An
estimated date for complete restoration of products and desired
quality is unknown at this time. We apologize for any
inconvenience.
