      In BPQ-APRS Basic setup there is an option for use local time, I do not
      Have mine checked, I use a modified Weather Watcher (internet) program
      Used for sending local WX in FBB or BPQ UIRoutine Beacons, also used for

      My BPQ-APRS WX beacon with a patch to convert text to the correct APRS
      Protocol, the following is the WX string it sends, without Rain fall:

      Weather Watcher WX is downloaded in local time

      Gm John,
      I set my K7MT-Igate to GMT Time and the weather is now beaconing.  It is
      used for my BPQ32 Switch, APRS, Weather Station, and Ham Radio so that
      is ok.
      I will send a note to the WXDisplay author in New Zealand and let him
      know and suggest maybe that when his program generates a the weather 
      wxnow.txt file for APRS that maybe an option for local or gmt time !!!! 
      Not sure but a thought is the WXDisplay program has been around for many
      years john generating the APRS Weather file.  I could be that everyone
      else uses local time. Only a thought…
      How about any other BPQ32 Folks out there with weather stations attached
      to your BPQ32 switch and running a wx program that generates a APRS WX
      file. Doe your program use local time or gmt time for the aprs wx file
      Cheers Bill K7MT
