Is Dale's wxsvr the only way that NWS messages and warnings are 
communicated to the APRS network?  If it is, how is it he claims average 
number of users are less than one an hour?  Many fixed APRS operations 
use the NWS warnings as an overlay to their APRS maps.  So if his wxsvr 
goes off the net, so goes all the APRS weather warnings?

"One ought never to turn one's back on a threatened danger and try to run away from it. If you do that, you will double the danger. But if you meet it promptly and without flinching, you will reduce the danger by half. Never run away from anything. Never!" -- Winston Churchill
