Not affiliated, just wanted to share that Convective Development released a new product recently that has a single interface for displaying 11 models.

The program is still being refined, but it's nice having a full suite of European products available to compare with other models.

Program is $15/month, which isn't bad with a bunch of Euro data in there.

Link is here -> www.f5weather.com
Weather Software-> GREarth, GRAnalyst 2.xx, MRLevel3, GRLevel 3 2.xx, Bufkit, GRLevel2, WXSim, and Radarscope.
Weather Station-> Ambient Weather WS-1090 Fine Offset
Weather Station Software-> Weather Display 10.37S, Cumulus 1.94
CoCoRaHS ID->  WV-KN-27
Administrator-> www.fitzweather.org

:D
Especially when the European models are more accurate :D

Though 15/month does not seem that cheap to me

That model definitely overall does a better job than the rest of the long range models.

About a $1.40/month per model doesn't seem that bad to me (?)

I'm fairly broke with student debt, but I feel like I'll be able to muster that come fall.

I assume you're not a fan of Allisonhouse then for radar data?

Hi,
Ive never heard about Allisonhouse. I only use radar images that are publicly available

1.4/model/month is not much, bud depends how you look at it, you said

$15/month

Thats 180/year - more than Ive ever spent for my entire weather station including Meteobridge license :D And thats just per year

Im not saying it is not useful, but question is whether it is so much better than what is publicly available
