      fldigi accesses the specified decoded METAR report using a built up URL:

      "http://weather.noaa.gov/pub/data/observations/metar/decoded/"<wxsta>".TXT"

      with your specified METAR station identifier substituted for <wxsta>

      An example of the returned html source:

      The above is captured in the fldigi event log when set to the DEBUG level of reporting.

      Am I to understand that you would prefer to transmit the "ob:" line to a fellow amateur radio operator?
