New Station Addition.

From build 3044 the development baton passed to Mark Crossley. Mark has been responsible for all the Builds since. He has made the code available on GitHub. It is Mark's hope that others will join in this development, but at the very least he welcomes your ideas for future developments (see Cumulus MX Development suggestions).

New Station Addition.

Post by Phil23 »

I've seen a few mentions of new station support being added to MX & I understand Mark's comments on needing a documented API as well as test hardware.

I have no need to replace my Davis, but often think it would be good to play with a 2nd station on an rPi & experiment a bit.

Maybe an approach would to make a short list of potential stations for consideration in a couple of different price brackets.
I know a colour display could be an appeal.

If Mark was to consider adding one or two of the listed suggestions, my thought would be to setup a Donate link to provide full funding for purchase of at least one station
(and maybe a 2nd if other parties are involved), as well as some token excess cash to contribute to his efforts.

I'd have no issue dropping a few bucks towards the addition of an appealing model.

Just thinking out loud.

Cheers

Phil.
