masked_where is a function that requires 2 arguments.
If you try to mask a whole record, you can try something like
>>> x = ma.array([('a',1),('b',2)],dtype=[('','|S1'),('',float)])
>>> x[x['f0']=='a'] = ma.masked
For an individual field, try something like
>>>x['f1'][x['f1']=='b'] = ma.masked

Otherwise, ma.masked_where doesn't work with structured arrays (yet, that's a bug I just find out)
