WeatherWire Setup

If you want to use WeatherWire, the first step is to obtain a user name and password from the NWS.  Use this link to make that request.  http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwws/news.html#NWWS_OI_Request  It may take up to two weeks to get your user name and password.

After you obtain your user name and password, you will need to purchase the WeatherWire ingest engine.  That can be done at this link. http://www.weathermessage.com/Purchase/tabid/124/ProdID/5/CatID/1/Weather_Message__Weather_Wire_Ingest.aspx

When you get your registration code, Click Start, Weather Message Net, Ingest, WxWw2000 (or WxWw2).  This will start the Weather Wire ingest program.  Click the Register option and enter your registration codes, then click Register.  Click File and Setup.  Enter your Weather Wire user name and password.  Click Save.  The program should connect to the Weather Wire server.

Start Weather Message Server Setup.  In the upper right hand corner, check the Weather Wire option.  This will tell the software to automatically start Weather Wire ingest.

You should restart your computer and verify that the WeatherWire ingest engine is automatically started with Weather Message.  Look for a blinking satellite icon in the system tray.
