CWOP still being maintained?
« on: November 27, 2022, 09:25:24 PM »
Hello everybody Is cwop still being maintained?They dont answer emails I keep getting what appears to be automated emails try to send them photos of my station but they have not appeared.They wont change my location.Have the people running it losted interest in it and just left the server to collect dust?The last news/blog on there was from 2015.
What do you guys think about it?Warren.

CWOP is being maintained by NOAA, but the website findu.com that you are probably referring to is not being maintained as expected.

I think I will just ignore the "Gladstone" map page from now on:

https://aprs.fi/static/a/FW4738

This one is pretty much bang on:

https://aprs.fi/#!call=a%2FFW4738&timerange=3600&tail=3600

Something like a year ago I sent an update to the link and got a response that said I needed to update the position my software was sending, which I did. Never saw any update on the map.

So I have been trying to correct a name and a location with limited response. I found my Weather Link software had the wrong location info I changed that and now when I click on the location in the CWOP members list, my location is mapped correctly. The Meso-West people said when the CWOP changes their info it will update on their system. But I have been waiting for a response on a name change for about a month now so I am not putting much faith in any corrections. being made.

I did get a response from a NOAA person that answered one of my cwop support emails, but that seems to be a dead end now also. When I get a chance I will dig up his info and post it here.

I believe so. Send an email to cwop-support@noaa.gov with updated information.

I just updated my CWOP section in Weather Display to reflect my new GPS coordinates. Went to the aprs.fi site and voila an hour later my new location was shown. I give up on the CWOP folks as they rarely return any emails and still have not updated my location.

Well my understanding is that someone is cleaning up some kind of mess left at the CWOP, and things are being updated now. I think, unless thee is another melt down it is going to be maintain and the data base updated every Wednesday. I know they updated my stuff andhopefully continues inthe future.

Don't know whats happening, but i can't reach my site on CWOP. I keep getting a error message from Cloudflare giving me a error message:1020. Nothing will let me into my site. What gives?

    "Don't know whats happening, but i can't reach my site on CWOP"
It looks like your data is getting to CWOP/findU>>
http://www.findu.com/cgi-bin/wxpage.cgi?call=FW7128
May be a problem with Cloudflare? What is the URL of "your site on CWOP"?

https://ambientcwop.com/showstationinfo.php?mac=60:01:94:39:9D:B6  This one gets me in most of the time. The link you gave me works never used that one before but i will keep that one around for emergency's. I like to keep a eye on the info. I have had the server go down here. I just want to make sure i am sending info. ThanksI  Guess i will wait and see if cloudflare lets me back in.

Got it. Yes, Ambientcwop is how we Ambient weather station owners can get our data to CWOP. There is an option to 'signup' so that if the data becomes 'stale' after 5 minutes Ambientcwop will email you. It has worked for me a time or two. :-)
I am able to get to my station on the Ambientcwop site this morning if that helps you troubleshoot anything on your end.
Also, this thread may help explain how/where our data goes to CWOP and beyond...https://www.wxforum.net/index.php?topic=35089.0 The findU site is where we can see our raw data that is being sent to CWOP.
I like to use the MesoWest as a way to check on my data as well. (your station on Mesowest, https://mesowest.utah.edu/cgi-bin/droman/meso_base.cgi?stn=F7128&unit=0&time=LOCAL&product=&year1=2020&month1=9&day1=27&hour1=05&hours=24&graph=0&past=0)

Looks like there is more ways to get the info i need.
This is the one i have been using, and is the one that cloudflare stops me from gaining station data. https://ambientcwop.com/showstationinfo.php?mac=60:01:94:39:9D:B6
Thanks for the info.

Mine just finally got updated in the last week or so.
