Several other programs can do that. My YAAC ("Yet Another APRS Client") program can do multiple beacons, objects, and bulletins at various independent update rates, plus weather data. It also accepts data from other sources so you could have a satellite orbit prediction program feed upcoming horizon breaks to APRS.
I can't speak for other software's capabilities.Technically, the friend's weather data should be transmitted by his own station (unless, of course, he isn't a licensed ham operator).Just remember not to send so much so frequently that there's no room left on the channel for someone else to get a packet in.Andrew, KA2DDOauthor of YAAChttps://www.ka2ddo.org/ka2ddo/YAAC.html

Hello, everyone.I recently took up on myself to try and reanimate APRS in my region, since all digis have disappeared. Since I have a kind of a clean slate to begin with, I've been trying to push more info onto our digi, mostly weather related, from both my own weather station and a friend's. I also "punch in" by hand next pass requests to SATSRV, form times to times.I like to expand on the ideia and include, automatically, as a Bulletin or Beacon, other information, namely satellite passes, DX information and HF propagation values, to start with. It looks like something like APRSData could fill some of these requests but it is DOS only and I find it hard to deal with in DOS emulators.I look at Direwolf and Soundmodem, for exemple, with TCP KISS capabilities and it looks like a place to start but it is out of my skill range.If anyone is doing any of this, how are you doing it? Is it even possible?CheersPaulo, CT2IWW
