Correction to station KSME (Somerset, KY)

Everything is correct for this station in the DIGATMOS.STN file, except the lat/long coordinates.

The new LAT should be 37.03 N and the LON should be 84.37 W.

The OLD LAT was 38.00 N and the LON was 84.36 W (which put the station very close to Lexington KY, but is actually just west of London KY [KLOZ]).

Thank you very much for the correction... it will take effect with Version 52 of the station tables.

For those using these values right away, the coordinates are actually 37 03' 084 37'. The presence of a decimal point implies a decimal fraction when these are actually degree-minute values, and so a DD.ddd to DD-MM conversion should not be done.
