Van Wert APRS Weather Network
The network provides current weather data from locations in the county using
APRS- Automatic Position Reporting System.
The network operates on 145.050 MHz.
Using a FM receiver tuned to that frequency and interfaced to a computer running APRS software one can monitor data directly from the network.
The following links provide access to the data from the web sites at amateur radio station N1ICS, FindU, and Weather Underground, each providing different display formats of the weather data:
