The weather station(s) I have used _in the past_ are those from Peet 
Bros. Those units output their telemetry directly into the TNC in a 
format which is decoded by any APRS client software... no intermediary 
files necessary like those produced by the Davis units. The Peet Bros 
units do have three modes only one of which is the one needed to produce 
the desired output. I also enjoyed top-notch support from Peet. YMMV!
