About 24% of the directions in this file are equal to 343.550
degrees. These directions occur when the recorded speed is zero,
i.e., when the actual current speed is below the instrument's
threshold. Thus these directions are evidently the result of
an equipment malfuntion or peculiarity and are not actual.
Note that most of the other MOVE instruments did record meaningful
directions when the recorded speed was zero.
