Weather Quality Reporter

This is the control page for the Weather Quality Reporter. This is a part of the Citizen Weather Observer Program.

This page allows you to add a site to be monitored for data quality reporting. To sign up, you must provide a site code used by APRSWXNET, and an email address that works. When you enter one or more site codes, an email will be sent to the address that you provided. You must click on a link in that email to confirm your address. Data quality emails will be sent no more than once per day, and then only if there are problems with your data. Absence of data is not (currently) treated as a problem.

Only sites in North America, Central America and the Carribean are monitored. If you are outside those regions, then you are welcome to try and register, but it is likely that an error message will be displayed later saying that no data has been analyzed. Sorry.

You can also sign up for a low traffic mailing list to discuss weather quality issues at wxqc.

You can enter a site code in a number of formats:

  • NWS ID (aka AFOS ID): This is the five character id like Cxxxx, Dxxxx, APxxx and ARxxx.
  • Amateur Radio Callsign: You know what this is if you have one.
  • Citizen Weather ID: This is six characters of the form CWxxxx, DWxxxx.
