Eric,
Where are you, and which NWS are you served by?  Not all NWS stations are 
setup the same way. Some are IS only, some use RF only, and some have no 
APRS at all.

Some NWS offices only use Citizen Weather Observer Program,
<http://www.wxqa.com/>
and others use weather from independent sources. 

I have also been to NWS offices that ONLY had APRS weather via RF, they 
explained it was problem of getting non-government approved apps thru the 
firewall.
More detail or a callsign would be good.

Dave

I am setting up a weather station sometime this spring, and i'd like a 
little clarification on how the data from APRS weather stations gets to 
the NWS. In a home based situation, wouldn't it be more efficient to have 
the weather station upload data directly to the server the NWS is pulling 
from? Does the NWS have an APRS receiver program in any cities? Otherwise, 
it seems like you could keep reliability high by putting all your 
networking equipment on a UPS and submitting your data over the internet.
