Airspace, FAA Regulations

Hi, While reading NOTAMs, I often see an exclamation point preceding the NOTAM. What does this mean? Here's an example: !FDC 6/6605 CMA ODP CAMARILLO, CAMARILLO, CA. TAKEOFF MINIMUMS AND (OBSTACLE) DEPARTURE PROCEDURES AMDT 3... TAKEOFF MINIMUMS: RWY 8, STANDARD WITH MINIMUM CLIMB OF 250 FT PER NM TO 1800. ALL OTHER DATA REMAINS AS PUBLISHED. 1604071757-1611171757EST Thank You, Matt

    From http://thinkaviation.net/notams-decoded/

    “The vast majority of every NOTAM begins with an exclamation point and an airport location: !PDX. This is airport identifier is called the ‘accountable’ location.

    This doesn’t apply to Flight Data Center (FDC) NOTAMs, though. FDX NOTAMs are easy to identify because they begin with ‘!FDC’.”
