RE: [BPQ32] BPQ32 APRS Weather Not working
- The "Use Local TIme" setting in BPQAPRS just changes how times are displayed.There are two checks in the WX beacon code. Both the file time stamp, and the content of the file itself (if present) are checked. The file system always uses UTC, so isn't a problem. One solution may be to remove the check on the time within the file, as the code already accepts WX files without the timestamp73, John

Hi Mike ,
I noticed that Local Time and I do have it checked. I don’t think that will solve my problem as it is my WXDisplay Program (with a Oregon Scientific Weather Station WMR-918) that is putting local time in the generated APRS Weather String. G8BPQ John said BPQAPRS is expecting GMT time in the String. By setting my Ham computer to GMT that fixed the problem. However, I will try it though and see if it works (uncheck local time).
