Getting The Moon Phase Picture Back

I did some digging around on and off and found a pretty good Moon Phase Picture. I think the code has been removed from the Cumulus MX indexT.htm template. From Cumulus 1.9.4, here is the original Almanac code: <!-- Almanac --> <table style="width:100%;border-collapse: collapse; border-spacing:...

NOAA changed the link to the .TXT METAR reports. The .PHP files have been updated for this change. Redownload from the first post.

Re: Erratic Readings Which Are Too Low

I figured out what was going on. So far it has been about 4 days without an issue. I have a software defined radio (RTL-SDR) which plugs in with a USB cable. I use a program called SDRSharp to listen to radio transmissions. It kind of turns the RTL-SDR into a police scanner. Pretty cool stuff actual...

Re: Erratic Readings Which Are Too Low

Those settings seemed to work, but I did have Wind Chill bottom out during the day once. This was not due to reading station data to catch up to the current time. It was while it was running normally. I decided to try this and let the station catch up: EWtempdiff=10 EWpressurediff=10 EWhumiditydiff=...

Re: BT's Global Zambretti Weathercard Forecaster PHP Scripts

@gosigweather

It's been awhile but I came up with a formula for the forecast letters. If you click on the red forecast, you can see the settings currently being used to determine it which you should be able to match. Remember though this is the Weathercard and not the circular Zambretti dial.

Re: 6250 Vantage Vue Temperature Sensor

After reading bad reports about Davis Customer Service, I decided to instead go with a Ambient Weather WS-2095 which I can make a custom FARS for when I have more time.

Re: Dead wh-2080

Probably 433 MHz, but it could be 915 MHz there. Hard to tell without markings. Do you have any paperwork or the box it came in?
