I am wondering if Weather34 Aurora MKI will work with Ambient Weather System 2902B

I have been using PWS interface for years and have had no issues, But I just love the look of Weather34 Aurora MKI

Just thinking of setting up Weather34 but I donít have a microbridge or any of that. My weather system sends data to Weather underground and Aeris weather and PWS gets the data from there.

I really like the look of Weather34 Aurora MKII

Does anyone know if I can run that with my Ambient Weather System 2902B

that's not exactly the right forum for your question - https://www.wxforum.net/index.php?board=111.0 would have been more appropriate.
The answer is: not directly.

If you use a tool like FOSHKplugin https://www.wxforum.net/index.php?topic=39625.0, you could have your WS-2902 console post via the custom server in Ambient format to FOSHKplugin which in itself could convert it into a string readable by the Weather34 template. In order to do this you have to know the so-called API string needed which is unfortunately no longer published as the template is no longer supported by the creator.
If interested, I could provide you with the API string created for Meteobridge/Ambient Weatherbridge. Your data sent from the WS-2902 console would need to be converted from this into the string format which is basically just a specific sequence of sensor values. That's for FOSHKplugin

You could of course also get you a Meteobridge/Ambient Weatherbridge which has already a ready-made posting template inbuilt for W34. MB would read from your console via the custom server functionality of the console.
I'd recommend the RaspberryPi or NANO SD version for Meteobridge. Details: www.meteobridge.com

W34 was originally created for use with Meteobridge - and, did you mean Aurora MKI or Aurora MKII ?

Thanks,

and I ment Aurora MKII, I wish that was still being supported.

Normally no support needed - only no new features being added. Just install and post regularly the data - but you will need a tool like FOSHKplugin, or Meteobridge/Weatherbridge or build yourself a tool which receives your custom server data and converts them into the format W34 Aurora MKII expects.
