WL.com 2 Seems to push data to WU ever 15ish to 20ish minutes verses WL(PC) pushing it out exactly every 5 minutes.
You can verify this by looking at your data in table format in WU.

Just an observation...

So, not nearly as convenient as WU or CWOP. 

Certainly you don't currently have a single URL that you can quote to people. But do remember that this is very much a work in progress. The features that are there right now seem to work pretty robustly as far as I can judge. But I'm aware that there's a lot of development and support work going on currently. Part of that will be directed towards the mass migration from 1.0 to 2.0 that will happen in 2-3 months' time. And part will be extensions to the EM functionality.

But there are also significant extensions to the feature-set for wl.com 2.0 as a whole in development AIUI. So limitations that might exist right now won't necessarily apply in 6-12 months' time.

The issue with Tiled Tabled Bulletin seems to be explained by my station being a little new as both pages agree now.

First impressions:

Unlike WU it actually gets Wind Gusts correct however when flipping between the tiled bulletin and tabled bulletin the tabled bulletin was minutes older unless I did a browser refresh.

Second, I am going to use WL.com 2 to upload to WU as it does solve the Wind Gust under reporting issue.
I am not going to let WL.com 2 do the push to CWOP. I might later but for now I want see how reliable WL.com 2 is at pushing data to WU
The simplicity of the CWOP push is very temping compared to WL(PC).

My station is too new to be seen on the phone app yet.

Thanks for clearing that up.

You need someone who's used VPTools, of which I guess there are just occasional visitors here.

[2] is surely pretty obvious: it just needs a conversion between metric and US units, ie 1 inch = 25.4mm (though without seeing the context of how the variable is used it's difficult to be sure about exactly how it's used and relates to the tip increment, ie 914400 = 25.4*60*60 - I suspect that there's another multiplier/divisor in the calculation somewhere)

Some areas are in a serious drought, and some areas are seriously wet. My area would be the latter. Seen about a month's worth of rain in the last week, and are already 3-4" above normal for this time of year.

Yesterday, we had a steady rain cause some high water issues in the region. All 55 counties of WV are under a State of Emergency.

Did a quick write-up on the site if anybody is interested: http://www.fitzweather.org/wx21618.php

The first pic is a shot I took about 2 miles from my house where my station is located. The ole' Dodge Dart got a nice underbelly wash  ;)

Sounds like they have to register first to see your station...

Yes, that's correct. It's pretty simple and painless, but an unnecessary complication IMHO. And provided you tick the 'remember me' then after the first time you get straight in.

For a non-owning visitor:

1. Register an account;
2. Ah, I'm not 100% sure without checking. The first time, you just search for the name of a station and then click on the Bulletin link in the marker. The URL then contains a GUID, but what I'm not sure about is whether that's sticky or not in a web browser. But pretty sure you can remember it in the mobile app. This may well be an element of the sharing feature, which is still in development right now.

So Kevin, How hard is it to have your software send a spoofed server response? Is it even possible with the current configuration of software?

I am one of the 85 but unfortunately also unable to help as no idea on VPTools, etc.

Good luck,
