Maybe you don't understand, the weather stations are owned and  
maintained by the county. And it IS meeting their primary objective,  
the weather data from all the Keys station is being received very  
reliably at the EOC in Marathon, in the middle of the Keys. It is not  
making it out to the mainland well, but that is not their primary  
objective.
