GAF ISSUE TIMES

Hey Folks!

Im just punching my way through the MET E-text and have taken issue with Q.17 in the first revision exam. I perceive all the answers to be wrong.
Text within the GAF user guide states :
"Validity times are consistent for all GAFs nationally. The standard validity times are 2300Z0500Z, 0500Z-1100Z, 1100Z-1700Z and 1700Z-2300Z. Two GAFs will be issued every 6
hours and have a validity of 6 hours each
, (one +00 to +06hr GAF and one +06 to +12hr GAF)
thus providing a forecast for a 12 hour period."

Can someone back me up, ensuring i've learnt the right thing?

many thanks,

Meade

G'day Meade

Makes it hard when your not given the right choice doesn't it?

B should be the right choice but is written incorrectly should be 6 and 6. I'll amend that question in the book.

Cheers
