    As you say.

    In 2007 it was on the front lawn of the coastguard station.

    Subsequently I looked at a huge database system, managed to find it and this implies the station ceased 2009. Perfectly possible the 2012 WMO list is wrong, mistakes happen.

    Also odd is the co-ordinates given are unusually poor for this current listing.

    ‘spose I can do it, not a good or important station.

    Updated thanks. Class 5, ignore as a special for local conditions.
