[aprssig] NEW PARADIGM Settings for Digi's

I'm just now working on setting up a remote aprs digi with WX.  What you're
talking about would be absolutely perfect for  application.  This digi will
be located S.W. of Springfield MO and will give the local National Weather
Service office data that they don't get at present from that specific area,
on 'incoming' storms to this region.  During severe weather events, I'd like
to see that data as often as 1 to 5 minutes.  But, there's no way that we
dare put that much data 'on the air' during 'normal' times.

Can you have it ready by next weekend???  :-) hi hi

Absolutely!  A pic to take raw WX instruments and put
it into the "complete" WX packet format would cut down
on QRM.  Making it report at 5 min interval if rapidly
changing conditions, or decay to 20 min if nothing
changing would be great.  Then the Kenwood mobiles
could see them too...  Bob

Interesting concept.  I guess I could go back and look but generally I
don't
think we have the same weather data over and over very often.  I've
thought
before a simple PIC project that split out a serial port so the
incoming
data was from the weather station and the outgoing data was to the TNC
could
parse the weather data string.  We've got a project kinda on the burner
that
would do just that, but allow multiple weather stations to be used on
the
input and multiple outputs (such as Peet Bros input and true APRS spec
output readable on the kenwoods) including plain text.  Not sure if it
would
be valuable to others, but on remote weather stations in could make a
much
better system.

Has anyone come up with "Smartwx".  that only send out with certain
changes
in the reading like smartbeacon for mobiles.  The constant sending of
the
same wx info causes more qrm than long paths.
