"""Test quality of USB connection to weather station



The USB link to my weather station is not 100%% reliable. The data
read from the station by the computer is occasionally corrupted,
perhaps by interference. I've been trying to solve this by putting
ferrite beads around the USB cable and relocating possible
interference sources such as external hard drives. All without any
success so far.

This program tests the USB connection for errors by continuously
reading the entire weather station memory (except for those parts that
may be changing) looking for errors. Each 32-byte block is read twice,
and if the two readings differ a warning message is displayed. Also
displayed are the number of blocks read, and the number of errors

I typically get one or two errors per hour, so the test needs to be
run for several hours to produce a useful measurement. Note that other
software that accesses the weather station (such as
:doc:`pywws.Hourly` or :doc:`pywws.LiveLog`) must not be run while the
test is in progress.

If you run this test and get no errors at all, please let me know.
There is something good about your setup and I'd love to know what it
