[aprssig] Weather-Davis Vantage KPC-3

Davis sells an interface module specifically to allow direct connection to a
TNC. If he has the PC serial interface, I'm pretty sure you can't connect
directly because the PC interface doesn't generate APRS sentences by itself
(you'll need PC-based software to go with it). 

See: http://www.davisnet.com/weather/products/weather_product.asp?pnum=6540

Note that you can get a better price from some Davis resellers or via eBay.

OK.. have a request from a friend.

New Davis Vantage Pro (the wired version).

Wind, 2 temps, rain, snow sensors.

Wants to interface it to a KPC-3 8.2.

I see several have done this.. I don't find a good wiring guide, and
settings/ config.

The TNC is already a DIGI at the site.

So.. could someone suggest settings and wiring/ cabling information? Or a
pointer to a detailed "how to". Haven't found one so far in my googling.
