Aercus WeatherRanger Purchased

Hi

In the end I went for the wifi WeatherRanger after checking the Davispro and the extra's needed it didn't work for me.

So it's back uploading to Wunderground iChurwel6.

Now as this uploads direct to WU has can anyone give advice to programs to pul the data off so I can build my own web site.

I'm all ears folks. (saying that best make sure I still have the site i'm sure the payment is July)

Cheers

Is it too late to return it and get one that has a PC connection?
If so then you really only have two options for live data collection.
1) Scape the data off the WU site somehow. Note that WU is clamping down on free API connections.
2) Receive and decode the radio data steam. Watch this video on how to do it https://youtu.be/L0fSEbGEY-Q

If that all seems too difficult, then maybe think about boxing it all back up and selling it and get another station (that supports Cumulus ;) ).

Thanks for the reply Bob,
Note that WU is clamping down on free API connections.
Do you have for info on this please, I'm a paid member till on WU or is it these types of stations.

A bit of quick thinking required with info to go back to Amazon & it supplier for Monday.

Honest can't fault the kit and display etc but the idea is to upload otherwise it's a stand along bit of kit.
