Hummh...  I thought it was actually the other way around.
No need to send the 1 when above 1000 mb because
the only other thing it can be is in the 900's....
I thought that was the way APRS does it.
I assumed the spec does it that way too...

Maybe I am remembering wrong.


I think, there should be five digit number for barometric pressure (b.....) 
and it cause the problem.
UI-View uses .txt file with already formatted wx data, so weather software 
probably do the mistake, not UI-View.
