  • I know we all have an unhealthy relationship with Rapid Fire since WU introduced it. Weather isn't an event that goes from freezing to boiling in milliseconds. --- In wuhu_software_group@^$1, "Rogo" wrote: > > My Action file is supposed to fire on weather update. Sometimes it does (every 3-5 seconds), other times there is a big lull in data, or data only comes in twice a minute...

  • OK, I'll bite. What is all this about? I have no idea why everyone is excited. I am sure it is my lack of knowledge about what this amazing beast is.

  • No and, with a retail of $179, I doubt I'll try to compete with NOAA reporting of that.

  • What is the device manager showing for the com: ports? Port assignment is a function of the O/S. I am not that familiar with the Arduino but recall it did have USB and wonder if you could disable its serial port. I have a little Atom computer about that size that I communicate with it using TightVNC to control things. I mucked with serial since we set jumpers and it has always been...

  • Anybody at CWOP ever hear the old saw: If it ain't broke; don't fix it. I am again reminded why I didn't bother to jump through their hoop to provide my data. And, as KB9EU, I was trying to help out and left instead after an exchange of "our way or the highway" emails.

  • You can get/order on Amazon. But, they are shipped from China. Take a look on aliexpress.com for a ton more. They have 7, 8.9, and 10" touch screen models. Also, look at the TV one. No screen at all. Instead, HDMI to use the TV and Bluetooth for a combo keyboard, pad. Some look like a thumb drive and others are larger with typically more features. The low end one have an older...

  • You can pick up a 7" tablet with an older processor for as little as $35 from China sites like aliexpress. It probably more powerful than either of the units mentioned and you aren't tied to proprietary sites/apps. A small set of speakers and a little holder and you've your alarm, weather and more for the nightstand. I'm not a huge fan of Android but it what's there. And, with a 7...

  • With you being the only reporting user, I'd guess that it is hardware/driver related somehow. It is really the only or at least typical differentiation. With weather setups that's usually a serial driver. Might check for update or regress to an earlier version to see if that helps. Poor drivers could mung the stack which might cause a return to an unplanned location that fails to...

  • Possible solutions differ across operating systems. Place to start is with the Task Manager to ascertain if the app is still present/loaded. My copy is running XT and I've not lost the icon but there is an anomaly -- Task Manager doesn't show it as active in the applications list. I'm not sure why. I run Heavy Weather to interface to it and that may have made it a child process...
