[obspy-users] Difficulty with getPAZ

I am probably doing something dumb, but I am having a hard time using the
getPAZ on the IC network dataless (
http://www.iris.edu/pub/RESPONSES/DATALESS_SEEDS/IC.dataless).  When I run
through a scan of the blockettes (blockette 50 and 52) I get the existence
of such blockettes.  However, I am unable to run getPAZ to retrieve the
response information.  This only appears to be a problem with historical
epochs.  I am able to retrieve the present epoch without any issues.

Below is the script I am running along with the output.  Thanks for any
ideas anyone can shed on this.

Thanks for your help,

#!/usr/bin/env python

from obspy.core import UTCDateTime
from obspy.xseed import Parser

#Get the PAZ from the following station
net = "IC"
sta = "BJT"
chan = "LHE"
loc = "00"
attime = UTCDateTime(2011,01,01,01,01,01)

#Read in the IC dataless
sp = Parser('IC.dataless')

#Run through the dataless and try to find station sta
for cursta in sp.stations:
for blkt in cursta:
if blkt.id == 50:
#Find a blockette 50 and get the station call letters
stacall = blkt.station_call_letters.strip()
if stacall == sta and blkt.id == 52:
#Next we use blockette 52 to get the channel
if blkt.channel_identifier.strip() == chan and
blkt.location_identifier.strip() == loc:
#Lets print the start and end date for this sta chan and loc
print "Here is the start:" + str(blkt.start_date)
print "Here is the end:" + str(blkt.end_date)

paz=sp.getPAZ(net + '.' + sta + '.' + loc + '.' + chan ,datetime=attime)
print "Can not find a paz"
