[aprssig] Help needed - APRS+SA & Peet WX

Greetings to the APRS SIG - I'm back online after a long absence.

I'm still running APRS+SA along with a Peet  Bros U2100.
The problem is, the wind readings being transmitted are not correct.
My guess is, they are missing a decimal but that's pure speculation.

The readings available on the display of Peet WX station control head 
are accurate, no problem evident there, which would also seem to put the 
remote anemometer in the clear.
The historical readings stored on the control head are also in line with 
the "real-world" experience.

But take a look at what's posted on findu and you see wind readings that 
are approximately 10 times those that occurred.

All other readings transmitted on APRS appear correct, with the 
exception that wind SPEED and GUSTS seem to be reversed when I look at 
the history on APRS + SA.

Can anyone help shed some light on this?  I'd appreciate some guidance.

Thanks,

Jeff Reinhardt AA6JR
