Citizen Weather Observer Program Updater

CWOP has a more complicated format and initialization process. Review the following site for more details: http://www.wxqa.com/faq.html.

After you have sent data packets to CWOP, check that your data is successfully reaching the findu.com server by visiting http://map.findu.com/.

If your plotted location on the findU map is correct, send an e-mail to cwop-support@noaa.gov giving your CW/DW designator and ask to be registered. Your data can then flow to NOAA.
