comparative rabal

A rabal observation (i.e., a radiosonde balloon tracked by theodolite) taken simultaneously with the usual rawin observation (tracking by radar
or radio direction-finder).

Its purpose is to provide a rough check on the alignment and operating accuracy of the electronic tracking equipment.
