James has it pretty straight, but you're looking for software
that can create a wxnow.txt file. That is the primary
interface for weather stations to APRS, and the only one supported
You have the wrong equipment according to what
little information you provide and what others are assuming.
If there is no way to get the data from your
weather station into a computer running a program that will
create a weathernow.txt file, then there will be nothing for
APRSISCE/32 to ingest and send out.
APRSISCE/32 needs access to the weather data. If
it can’t access the weather data, then there will be no APRS
You need to integrate both the weather station and
APRSISCE/32 to make this work.
If there is a way to get your weather station to
create the appropriate file on the computer running APRSISCE/32,
then get that set up and working and away you go.
You know what you have for equipment, dig into
your manual and find out if you can get the information required
It’s always a good idea to figure out what you
want to do, then do some research to determine what equipment
you need to reach that goal, then buy the equipment and
implement the plan.
Buying parts and then trying to make it do
something it isn’t intended to do can be a challenge.
I don’t know specifically if your equipment is
capable of doing what you need.
However, if you can see all the information you
need on a web page, I would suspect that one could create some
web scraping scripts that run on a cron job to scrape the data
and create the required output and save it into a file.
It’s a bit of a work around to get the job done,
but it might be a way to make what you have fit the bill if it
can’t be done any other way.
Where there’s a will, there’s a way.
TW gets it, Brian gets it and I still have no clue.
