Model is a WS-2902C

It can push to weatherunderground, weathercloud and a Custom method 
which is what i am using to process the data locally on raspberry pi.

The custom option one specifies
IP/Hostname, path, port and upload interval.

i run a python program that opens port 8080 to receive the posts from 
the weather station.
i store weather data locally in a mysql db and every 5 minutes extract 
the latest reading and send it to UDP port on aprs2.net

Format of the data coming from the weather station. I have 3 additional 
temp/humidity sensors in addition to the outside: - - [23/Feb/2023 13:34:45] "GET 
HTTP/1.1" 200 -

> If you are wanting to interact with it, at least 15 years ago i didnt have to jump through any hoops to get Davis to send me the documentation on it. I looked and couldnt readily find it. I still have the C code but not sure i would share that even with someone i didnt like. I wrote it for my use only and this much time elapsed apparently  i didnt like myself :)
