to the internet and transmitted locally via APRS

I now have My UI-VIEW parameters set to 50KM
to stop my screen getting swamped

W-8681 Weather Station - Weather Display software (wxnow.txt) - UI-View - TNC Tiny2

The Cumulus software picks up the data from the Maplin N96GY Weather Station via the USB port,
uploads the details to the web and also produces a text file called wxnow.txt
UI-View picks up the text file and converts it to APRS WX data which is then transmitted onto aprs.fi and
via a TNC Tiny 2 and YAESU FT227 to 144.800 MHz
wx_player also picks up the 'wxnow.txt' file and converts it to speech, wysiwyh saves the speech to a '.WAV' file
This wav file can be picked up by echolink and broadcast over the air
