Come on, Edouard, we both know those Moon landing images were done in a studio in LA. They used black and white just to make the Moon look older!

We "watched" those landings on our Sansui stereo tuner purchased at the BX at Clark AFB. I did record the broadcasts (on a Teac reel-to-reel tape deck), but we didn't have a TV to watch while we were there!

I'm still waiting for the Ted Turner colorized version of the moon landing to come out.

So how many people remember the Apollo 11 landings personally?

I remember it well. I also remember watching Disney's Wonderful World of Colour on my grandma's Motorola. She had one of the first television sets in our little town.

Dear Steve, X-Air, Herb, Blick, and WeatherCat visitors to nostalgia lane . . . .

I remember it well. I also remember watching Disney's Wonderful World of Colour on my grandma's Motorola. She had one of the first television sets in our little town.

Now that you mention it, that is one of the color programs that I also remember.  That was "big stuff" for a kid in those days.  Come to think of it, that was about the first time I had a "weather station."

These horrible things are a bit harder to find but they are still out there. . . .

And you thought the next generation was going to be any better off!! . . .  [rolleyes2]

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

WOW!!!

But where is the Solar array? And where does the battery fit? Must be a very small transmitter, also!!!

Grand, I presume you're tracking the third-party Siri support in iOS 10. Although SiriKit initially only supports a very narrow class of apps, dare we hope that weather apps might be part of a future expansion?


How cool to use Siri on my iPhone or Apple Watch to interface with your app and quickly find the temperature at my weather station, or rainfall the past hour, or the max rainfall intensity in the current storm, windspeed, etc...all without having to physically open up WeatherCat for (mobile device).

Give some examples of what you would say in your request to Siri.

Examples:


Newtown = PWS


Hey Siri, What's the Newtown temperature?
Hey Siri, how much did it rain at Newtown today?
Hey Siri, what's the Newtown rainfall rate now?
Hey Siri, how hard is it raining at Newtown now?
Hey Siri, what was the Newtown temperature at 10 am?
Hey Siri, what's the Newtown wind now? (expecting current direction and speed)

We'll see what Siri has to say about that  :)

Thanks for the examples. That's very helpful although that would require a WeatherCat client on steroids. I'll investigate as time permits.
