the second to last byte contains a measure of the signal strength. it can
be 0-3, inclusive. a value of 0 means no contact with the sensors.
the acurite console reports the last known data for the sensors, even if it
no longer has contact with the sensors.
weewx reports values only if there is contact with the sensors.
btw, it is not clear exactly what the "signal strength" indicator on the
console is reporting. george nincehelser reports that it is a measure of
the number of dropped rf packets, not a measure of actual rf signal
strength. since acurite publishes nothing about their hardware, no one
knows for certain.
anyway, it is not unusual to get 'ignoring stale data' messages. a few
