Does the SAME data put out over NOAA weather radio contain a full alert
feed, such as the Igate system currently puts out on RF?
SAME is described here: http://weather.gov/nwr/nwrsame.htm
Does anyone know of a decoder circuit for SAME? Google didn't help me.
It seems to me that, if NOAA is transmitting this data over the 162.xxx
channels, it wouldn't take a lot of work to gateway this data onto
APRS-RF. After looking at the technical specs I would hazard a guess
that using a NOAA receiver, a small board with an XR2211, and some new
firmware for an X-track, OpenTracker, or TT one could have a
computer-less internet-less local weather alert feed for APRS.
