This record contains four episodes where the speed sensor appears
to have gone offscale at speeds near 100 cm/sec. (The RCM5's sensors
record numbers in the range 0 - 1023; a speed above this range would
wrap around to a low value. u and v look quite reasonable during these
times but speed clearly shows interpolations. The four episodes are
in lines
