This is really cool!

Does anyone know what software KA6MAL is using?

I don't think it is a good idea to broadcast that kind of information.
Kamal, KA6MAL, has an experimental Traffic Info and Aviation Weather bot
(METAR) running. One request, one response.

Send a APRS message to KA6MAL-4 and use "?HWY 101" for example for traffic
info for HighWay 101. To get the METARs use "?AVWX SFO".

This is experimental, so your milage may vary ...

73,

Andreas, N6NU
