GKrellWeather is not pulling stats.

I put in a couple of different stations and it isn't pulling anything.

Any tips on beginning to troubleshoot this?

KCQN is the station I normally use.... but testing YSSY actually pulled data and is being displayed in GKrellWeather. Could my station be down?

GKrellWeather suggests using this site:
http://www.nws.noaa.gov/tg/siteloc.shtml

I e-mail the noaa and got this response:
Quote:

There is no weather data available for KCQN -

See the listing at:
http://www.faa.gov/airports_airtraffic/weather/asos/?state=TN

Not all airports with automated sites transmit data - if the station listed is not linked to the current report, they do not transmit obs.


So use this site instead to find locations in the US, the other one seems outdated:

Updating this thread, use this link as their site has changed:
