Does anyone on the list have any experience with getting a Davis Vantage Vue weather station on RF APRS?  I am trying to help another guy get this going.  From what I have found out so far, it looks like Davis makes an (RS232 Datalogger) that looks like some kind of TTL to RS232 adapter going from an RJ45 to a terminal block that I guess is putting out RS232 levels and still needs a cut off serial cable or something similar to complete the wiring job.  The major problem with this is, the adapter is another $225.
Has anyone found a better (lower cost) option.  I see that WeeWX running on a Pi has native USB support for the Davis and even feeds to the CWOP servers, but I can't find any support for APRS whether through a direct TCP/IP feed to APRS-IS and/or a way to reformat the data to a Peet Bros or other similar format and then spit it back out at serial (TTL or RS232) levels that I can then feed to an OpenTracker or similar APRS device to get the data to the actual RF network.
Any guidance would be great!
