I found a slight bug in the APRS output of the linux wx200d weather application.

As it comes when the temp dips below zero it outputs the temperature
parameter as "-7". This may have caused the temperature not to decode
properly in some applications. I found this using FINDU but it may be
the case with others as well...

so here was a quick fix:

on line 270 of wx200.c change:

       sprintf(tmpbuf,"%+02.0f",unit_temp(wx.temp.out.n,1));
to
       sprintf(tmpbuf,"%+03.0f",unit_temp(wx.temp.out.n,1));

then:
make
make install

This will out put the temp as "-07" and seems to make FINDU happy.

Just for the record I'm not picking on findu It's just the only app I
had access to at that moment.
