Assembled my weather station and APRS remote display tonight; everything appears to be working well EXCEPT the temperature on the remote display is stuck at 0C, -17F. The telemetry is correct, the humidity and pressure are correct… only the temperature is wrong. The data is correct on ThingSpeak and aprs.fi. Haven’t gone poring through the code looking for the issue yet, just wondered if anyone else has seen this.
The problem was that I entered my callsign in lowercase, and my callsign has a ‘t’ in it, so when the code went to look for the temperature, it got the rest of my call instead of numbers. So, two fixes possible… one, enter my callsign in UPPERCASE in my weather station configuration, and/or two, make the parsing more robust. Here is the solution for option two:
// remove waiting message when weather data is found
index=APRSdataWeather.indexOf('t', index );
Thanks for putting together some awesome little kits!!!
