I assumed that the proposed wind-speed-only solution
had been checked on the kenwoods. If that doesnt
work then I agree, use the format that does. Bob, WB4APR

Bob, I gotta say that I am upset and completely shocked at this.
You personally belittled me for ignoring the Kenwoods when my weather
were sending the format you just described. There was a very public
discussion of this topic on APRSSIG sometime in the last year. I would
recommend that you and everyone else on the SIG check it out.
After all of the personal attacks subsided it was concluded that the
radios would not decode a packet like .../010 and it instead needed a
format packet. I also recall that most everyone but you read the spec
as .../010 being a perfectly valid report - per spec - but was not
by the Kenwood radios.
Being that you now have made the same "mistake" as I, and others, have
respect to sending wind speeds without wind directions, I would
that you amend the spec to make this clear.
