Hello,

I operate a station on the Gower coast in South Wales and noticed another CWOP station in the sea. You can see it on this map: https://aprs.fi/#!lat=51.5577&lng=-4.2749&mt=roadmap&z=13&timerange=3600&tail=3600

It's pretty obvious that the coordinates are incorrect. The longitude is negative rather than positive. A positive longitude would place it in the correct place in the Netherlands (and reflect the station name)

I am curious how the station quality page can achieve green MADIS thumbs up when it's in the wrong place? https://weather.gladstonefamily.net/site/E3579
