No, I didn't miss that post.  As pointed out in another post, the SAME
data is simply FIPS codes and warning type.  While you could write an
application to have this generate a NWS format message, it will be of
little value to those spotting as this same information is being given
on the voice net.  And if the Internet is up (most of the time, contrary
to your assertions), your application would simply create duplicate
messages that fill up mobile radio message buffers.
