OK Will,
I'll take note of the readings during the weekend peak heat times.  I am running the 
your latest firmware 1.15.6R.   You can see from the findu plots that it is happening 
every day so I'll take a look at the display values and get back to you.  

I just received the Baro and Humitity sensors from AAG last week, so they are new 
and unproven.  Thanks in advance.

Oh, on another note, I can't see my WX station show up on my Kenwood TMD-
700A.  The raw packets fly by, but it never shows up in the list!

This is most likely the former, but the data also may give a hint if it is the actual pressure sensor or temperature sensor that may be off.
