Re: Using an Apple II to display the weather.

Hi,
Interesting. But he is using an PC and serial cable to D/L the Linux data/graph pattern to the Apple.

Years ago in Nuts & Volts 2 people in Florida built a card to interface to an antenna. This was done on a Apple IIe. This would give them an over head graphic picture twice a day when the Sat/Bird was only directly over head. The bad part was only a picture twice a day. They later went to the IBM for greater detail (more colors).

Take Care
