Clean and simple appearance

The dedicated menus enable you to further adjust WX_PLAYER, so you can play the messages that you need without too much effort.
Define the weather information you want to render through your repeater
For starters, you will need to choose the weather station that you want to work with, from the ‘WX Source’ menu, for instance ‘Davis Weather Monitor II’, ‘Davis Vantage’, ‘Lacrosse’ or ‘APRS Data’.
Subsequently, you can individually select the information you are interested in, specifically ‘Indoor’ and ‘Outdoor’ temperature, ‘Atmospheric Pressure’, ‘Trend’, ‘Wind’ and ‘Gust’ speed or ‘Direction’, being able to refresh the data at preferred time intervals.
Moreover, WX_PLAYER allows you to opt between US and International unit systems, from the ‘File’ menu; from this location you can also select the ‘Compass Card’ with ‘8 Directions’ or ‘16 Directions’, according to your needs.
Other configuration options include the ‘Announcement Contents’, such as the audio volume, the date format, the ‘Hello’ and ‘Goodbye’ messages, along with the periodicity of the task, in minutes.
A useful weather reporting tool
To sum it up, WX_PLAYER is a handy program that can function as a standalone application or as an assistant for SIMPLEX, allows you to render the weather conditions as audio messages.
