[aprssig] APRS WX question...

Thanks for your note, I didn't know or remember who supported what WX equipment for APRS.  That is slick if the firmware programming is changed via computer without having to have two seperate units involved.

For the OpenTracker, it's not a separate hardware device, it's just a
different firmware load.  You can change between the two at any time using
the configuration program.  As I said earlier, though, there's no support
for Davis in the OpenTracker yet.
