Very interesting Geoff!
About two years ago, Peter VK3BTN, Richard VK3JFK, and I discussed
doing something similar for fire service reports, snarfing reports off
the fire service web sites and converting them to APRS objects. I
into a number of problems, not least of which was browser security
restrictions related to cross-site scripting, so from my end at least
I did however come up with a fairly decent acronym for the project -
CICADA (Critical Incident Collator And Disseminator for APRS), and it
would be a shame to see this go to waste :-) So I'd be interested in
any technical details you'd care to release regarding WXSVR-AU, to
perhaps get CICADA "chirping" again...
