 +====== New MET station and server at Katherine ​ ======
 +Ryan Ruddick from GA has replaced the GPS receiver at Katherine with a newer "​Trimble"​ unit on This features a web interface that is mostly javascript unfortunately which the existing script cannot parse. A truly horrible lash-up has been created on [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.
