No UV and radiation are not the same value.
UV values are in bold because I made it bold to see it better.
Yes I am soure my station report the same value as it is on console I 
checked that many times.
Here is my calibration section.

        # For each type, an arbitrary calibration expression can be given. 
        # It should be in the units defined in the StdConvert section.
        # Example:
        # foo = foo + 0.2
        radiation = radiation * 0.731
        rainRate = rainRate * 0.1
        #barometer = barometer * 10.0025
        pressure = pressure * 1.0035
          UV = UV * 0.003
#windSpeed = windSpeed * 4.5
