This record is quite problemmatic. First, there are several
speed dropouts (episodes where the current meter's rotor counter
appears to have failed) most notably during 5 Jan 87, 4 and 5
Mar 87, 19 - 21 Apr 87, and 8 Aug 87. Second, there are linear
interpolations in speed and direction during 6 and 7 Mar 87,
9 Jul 87, and 18 Jul 87. Third, in many places the direction
series is unusually smooth and may have been smoothed to clean
it up.

There is a gap in speed and direction in lines 4151 through 4342
(26 Jun 87 - 4 Jul 87). 

Approximately 18% of the speeds in this record are zero.
