Default Weather Station

About four years ago I discovered at Oshkosh the weather reporting system by SayWeather. It has worked perfectly with no failures in four years. The weather station reports wind direction, speed, gust factor, altimeter, density altitude over the airport CTAF activated by four or five clicks on the freq. You can also add to that information a brief airport message such as "right traffic for 22", "noise sensitive area", 300 foot antenna west of field etc. The inventors of this system provide super support. It uses a computer generated voice which is very understandable.

It is in use at L70 in Southern CA. With line of sight the weather broadcast can be heard over 10 miles away.

The with a little magic this information can be linked to Weather Underground app so you can see the wx before going to airport.

The guys who designed the Stratux have a version that uses the same SDR to broadcast ADS-B weather/notams on 978MHz. It's being used by pilots in India (where the broadcast rules are lax) to provide traffic and weather locally at remote locations.

That would be me. We fly over from KOGD. Your runway is in great shape compared to nearby Manila airport. Ref the pic showing Flaming Gorge reservoir.

Very nice Steve thanks for coming! Town people were delighted when you flew over. When snow is gone I will leave a car there. Welcome to use it.
