Hello there,

As a beginner in this field, I wonder if there is just a single 
'standard' in data formats of weather stations used in APRS, or there 
are more standard formats. Any document about? I ask that because some 
meteorology equipment producers asked me about the way the weather data 
would be read in APRS. And I did not know anything about. In addition, I 
noticed differences in how WX stations present their data: Some show 
only the temperature reading (it is usually close to their callsign on 
the map), while some other stations give more weather details. Is that 
related to the WX equipment (the number & quality of sensors), or the 
'translation' of data from the sensors, or it is related to the WX 
station operator's software? Tnx.
