Hi Scotty et. al. RE: Automating WX,
I use HRD/DM and I cut and paste into a macro from the NWS text forecast. Takes me 3 seconds, but I have forgotten to update and transmitted weeks' old WX! That's the problem.
I will be purchasing a home WX station and looking for a solution, so this discussion is helpful.

I seem to remember one of the PSK programs (whether MIXW or
FL-DIGI) would transmit a weather.txt file. There was a way to
weather information into this txt file. However, FL-DIGI now
does WX:XXXX, and in the place of the 4 Xs you put the metar
station you want to send data from. Id rather download my
weather station data to a text file and then send that. And I
years ago we added a program that would do that. But its too

I also use HRD and have used Ed, W4ELP's program for inserting the
wx info into a QSO with the push of a button (or via macro).
It's described by Scott N3FJP here http://www.n3fjp.com/help/digitalsetup.html.
The "bridge" program has quite a lot of additional function, to
say the least, and Ed maintains it well.
