Broken wind readings worked around

By: opalmirror, 8:28 PM GMT on March 10, 2014

Since my weather station hardware has been reporting bogus wind readings (99.1 mph, gusts to 114.1 mph), I now null them and send them as zero. Hopefully both Weather Underground and CWOP will be happier with these, until I can afford better station hardware.

New Eugene Weather Station to come online

I will be setting up a new weather station at KOREUGEN28 within the next week or so... probably after the big snow storm goes through. The KORCOLTO5 station will go down after that. I guess I will need a new MADIS ID as well.Cheers,James
