Jason, at the moment I do not have access to the data logger protocol, 
but if I properly understood the factory, their product /if configured 
to do so/ can send collected data to their cloud either by cellphone 
GSM/GPRS network (not interested in), or via Ethernet, or by WiFi. (Not 
sure whether the logger works as a server or a client in either case.)

However, my APRS laptop has an Ethernet port as well as WiFi 
connectivity, so I just though to use those media to feed my end-user 
APRS application. (And retransmit the readings to the air, of course.)
