CEFAS's comment about this record's speed series:

"Believed to be a good record, although 25% of all recorded
speeds are at meter threshold. These are present throughout the
series but are especially frequent during the following two
periods:

    0330 22 Apr 93 - 2130 3 May 93 (records 1115 to 1397)
    1739 6 Mar 94 - 1039 21 Mar 94 (records 8761 to 9114)

However, these times coincide with quiet periods in the series
from the meter situated 103 m below; it may be that the threshold
speed of the rotor on this meter is greater than normal and
certainly more than that suggested by the calibration."
