[aprssig] NWS SAME useful for APRS weather feed?

I too would like to see a duplicate system for the WxSvr.  I will volunteer
to host one if Dale wants it.

I agree and this could be easily accomplished IF the alternate servers
generate their feed from the same source as WxSvr and use the same code so
that the extra packets which enter APRS-IS will be duplicates of each other
and the APRS-IS servers will drop the dupes.  I have asked for this scenario
for at least the last 3 years now with nothing to show for those requests.
