NOAA reports missing Average wind speed

Topics about the Beta trials up to Build 3043, the last build by Cumulus's founder Steve Loft. It was by this time way out of Beta but Steve wanted to keep it that way until he made a decision on his and Cumulus's future.

NOAA reports missing Average wind speed

Just noticed that Average Wind Speed is not being inserted into the NOAA reports, well except for the first 2 days.

That's strange, mine are OK. Could you have a look in the MXdiags file to see if it is reporting an error when it creates the report, please?

Removed about another 10 lines of them, they don't show up under a whereis search in Nano. Just scrolled down by page and removed all the rest. Will keep an eye on them and search MXdiags in future :)

Those look like the lines of nulls that can sometimes get written to the log file instead of data. This happens with Cumulus 1, too. Sudden closedowns are one cause.

Yeah we have had a few power issues here over the last 2 days. I am waiting for the Pi UPS to arrive so that should help stop so of them
