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 ...
