- I made a couple of new enchancements to the program.
Wind speed and direction uploaded to the weather servers are now
averaged. The method uses weighted averages (using vectors). This
should produce more accurate results. Previously, only the last
sample that was read was sent to the servers. Samples received in the
last 5 minutes are used in these calculations.
As a side note, I recently wired up my console rather than use the
wireless interface. The updates are much faster on the console and on
the Heavyweather screen however the currdat.lst file is updated only
once per minute. I put in a request to Lacrosse to update the
currdat.lst file whenever the data changes rather than the once per
minute updates. If this file were updated every 8 seconds, the
average wind speed and direction calculations would probably be much
Also added to this version, I added the ability to pass the weather
data to an action. For instance, you can send the temperature,
humidity values to your own application or batch file. See the
updated Readme.txt for more information.
I may added the capability to launch a generic action whenever the
currdat.lst file has been updated. If anyone has a need for this let
