Oh! thanks for pointing that out, I had it in my head that compression was
simply not allowed for records newer than RFC 1035, but of course this is

Shannon, Rockall: Variable 3 or 4 backing south or southeast, veering
southwest later, 5 or 6. Slight or moderate. Occasional rain, fog patches.
Moderate or good, occasionally very poor.
