    SOA-SMG/When things go amiss
    From: Irv Haworth
    Date: 2009 Oct 29, 15:58 -0700

    The logic component, it seem has been  missed by the system/navigator ..the wrong  E or W designator will do it every time  but at the least the SOA should have been picked up by WMO system, or so one would think.

    Anyone care to venture the reason or even a guess as to how these mistakes seem to slip through the system ?

    (The following data is from a rather large well known cruise ship , just near Brisbane Australia.)

    Wind from 130 at 14 knots

    Waves 1.0 meters (3 feet), 2 second period

    Barometer 1021.1 mb
    Air temperature 21.0 ° C
    Dewpoint 21.0 ° C
    Water temperature 20.0 ° C
