New MET station and server at Katherine

Ryan Ruddick from GA has replaced the GPS receiver at Katherine with a newer “Trimble” unit on 131.217.61.6. This features a web interface that is mostly javascript unfortunately which the existing wthKe.sh script cannot parse. A truly horrible lash-up has been created on dell2ke.phys.utas.edu.au [the UPS monitor PC] which opens firefox to load the siteand save the webpage as html, before extracting the MET data to a text file. This file is then copied to pcfske, where the edited wx function can read it. While ludicrous and somewhat embarrassing overdesigned, it is functional and should last until someone with a working knowledge of javascript can deal with the new MET server. In the meantime, please do not interfere with the firefox window eternally popping up on the dell2ke display.
