I recently purchased a weather station.
In the process of this, I discovered that 99% of them are pre-programnmed (hard coded) to Upload their data to www.wunderground.com, in the format required by that API.
I then discovered that Weather Underground is "closing their API":
https://apicommunity.wunderground.com/weatherapi/topics/end-of-service-for-the-weather-underground-api

After founding this out, I decided for a weather station which comes with its own PC software and a USB cable which would give me more flexibility.

Still, it could not Upload its data to OpenWeatherMap, with its new API.

So I have written a (MS-Windows) program which acts as a Weather Underground API server, converts the imcoming data to the OpenWeatherMap API, and then Uploads it to their API. Works perfectly.

My question is: Is there interest with current 'Weather Underground' weather stations to switch to OpenWeatherMap using this conversion program?
If so, I will add some more features, and make it ready for Beta release.
Initially this will be free while still in Beta, but if I do go through all this work, I will later request a one-off small fee if people want to keep using it.

Let me know if it is worth my effort.
