I would like to announce "Gamma Testing" of AutoSkyWarn (ASW). ASW is 
designed to couple SkyWarn Operations with AllStar Servers / Nodes. ASW 
is a program / shell script (developed to run on the AllStar DIAL 
distribution for PCs) allowing an AllStar Server and Node to 
automatically report and announce forty nine (49) National Weather 
Service (NWS) Warnings, Watches, Advisories and Special Weather 
Statements as they occur.

You can access the Overview and ReadMe1st first documents at


and also on that site you can hear 3 sounds clips of messages produced 
by ASW.

This release is for someone that has worked with UNIX/Linux systems as 
superuser. There are notes, but no step by step installation guide. 
(There is an effort to integrate ASW into the DIAL upgraded system.) The 
software requires Festival and SOX to operate. Alpha and Beta testing 
have been successful.

I will be releasing copies of ASW (as a tarball) by email until there is 
a fully documented installation guide. So after reviewing the Overview 
and ReadMe1st if you are still interested in becoming a Gamma Test site 
for AutoSkyWarn please send me an email at

KF5VH at louisiana.edu

and please include:
- your location
- a URL pointer to your repeater/group website if you have one

- if you are willing to make notes about your install process

- and when you have it running, send comments about operation
- any other interesting information

The tarball should be ready by next week.
