Use Cumulus 1.9.4 with UI View?

Discussion and questions about Cumulus weather station software version 1. This section and its subforums are the main place to get help with Cumulus. Anything which is not specific to the type of weather station goes in here; for anything specific to a type of weather station, please use the appropriate subforum. Use the 'website development' section for any questions relating to creating or running a web site for Cumulus data. Discussion of the stations themselves in these sections is fine.

Use Cumulus 1.9.4 with UI View?

Post by Freezeville » Sun 04 Mar 2018 6:12 am

I'm trying to help a friend. His station is the Davis Vantage Pro 2. He was using Ambient VWS software to send weather data to APRS over an RF link (2 meter amateur radio) through UI View32 and wants to change over to Cumulus 1.9.4. Does anyone know how to make this work? Can it be made to work, or is there something special about Ambient VWS that allows it to interface with UI View32?

I don't know anything about this! But... Cumulus has automatic creation of the wxnow.txt file that is required but in. See http://wiki.sandaysoft.com/a/Wxnow.txt
