Heh, well "I" want it on the radio, in the areas I tend to drive  
in :) (Tragedy of the commons anyone?) Which really isn't that big an  
area, so I was thinking the cheapest 5 or 10 stations in each area,  
once every hour or so.

We weren't sure if anyone wanted Irish weather data either but now if  
we removed it, we'd be shot.

Note:
We inject the weather into ireland.aprs2.net so only our (2)  
configured igates send it out to RF.

When the variation can be 15% in 5-10 miles, it can be worth it, but  
your point is taken

All he would be doing is giving me the data.  Obviously I'd say where  
the feed is from "pumps.ie" but thats all.
