I switched to reporting via my Cumulus as it has a more accurate format for entering the lat/longs of the station. Putting the station finder icon right on my home lot.

I see now, from looking at the CWOP site, that I have been missing out on great features.  The site "grades" my station, which reassures me that, after 5 tough years on the roof with nothing but a battery change, the Vantage Vue is "calibrated" and getting double "thumbs up" marks on each measurement. 

I have been the loser from not setting up correctly and using the CWOP site correctly from day one.
Trust me, don't get all caught up in that "grading stuff". Your grades are only as good as your neighbors stations will let you have.
