[aprssig] Stand Alone WX

I've been running a Peet for years as a stand alone WX digi. Since my site is solar powered, the power consumption is minimal. Just don't use/buy one w/a humidity sensor. They don't last but a few months, gave up replacing them. Another issue yet to be resolved is the flow of WX data to the KPC-3, usually in winter.Data will stop being updated and will send same temp and winds every transmission, or it will be corrupt and give rediculous temp and wind readings until I climb the hill and reset the Peet Bro WX Station, KPC-3, and/or both. I thought it was temperature related, but installing everything in a styrofoam cooler and using the heat of the radio's finals ( IC-2000 ) still didn't stop the unreliable WX data. Temp in the cooler was >60, even in the coldest of winter WX in NH.
