If anyone has been looking for a low cost weather station to interface to
I stumbled on the Radio Shack 63-256 Weather Station on in-store closeout
here in Lafayette.
A picture and brief description are here:
It is similar to the Oregon Scientific WMR-100.
Note that the wireless sensors transmit on 433 MHz.
I don't operate on 440 much so don't know if this will be an issue.
My APRS iGate station runs the UI-View software to route local APRS packets
to/from the Internet.
I installed the weather station and used the latest beta version of Cumulus
on the APRS PC to interface to the weather station and create the wxnow.txt
file that UI-View reads to create the WX packets.
The iGate/WX APRS station is running as N4ELM-2 and the measurements can be
seen online at aprs.fi or findu or directly off the air on 144.39.
This is still work-in-progress but appears to be working well.
