NIST Time Server

It has come to my attention that the time server the WiFi station uses by default has stopped accepting calls for the protocol I use.

The station therefore always uses the fallback ( secondary) time server which can lead to initial connection and reporting issues during, or shortly after, bootup of the station.   I recommend to change the  primary server’s IP address from 128.138.140.44 to, for example,  216.228.192.69.  This is done in the station configuration menu under Time.

The boot process of the station can be observed with the Boostrap tool, using the Monitor feature. This allows you to see see if there are problems getting the time.

All weather data services except Weather Underground must have the time set correctly to accept the data.
