This instrument began to fail after about 20 days in situ.

Temperature ends at line 468 (0000 28 Sep 83).

u and v end at line 721 (1300 08 Oct 83).

The direction series remains usable through line 2833
(1300 04 Jan 84) and has been removed beyond that point.
Speed, direction, u, and v are somewhat rough on 01 Oct 83
and 04 - 05 Oct 83 and are suspect at those points.

Move up one level.
