WXWarn 2.0 Now Available & Future Visions for N3FJP Software!

Home News

Hi All,

Chris, Kimberly and I are excited to let you know that...

WXWarn 2.0 is now available!

WXWarn taps into the National Weather Service real time weather data feed, constantly monitors NWS weather updates and displays just the alerts that are important to you as they are issued.

Whether you simply want a "heads up" to unfolding forecast weather conditions in your own county, or you would like statewide, region wide, or severe weather alerts for the entire US, you can easily configure WXWarn to display just the information that you are looking for!

WXWarn 2.0 is a complete recreation from our previous version 1.8, is operating system agnostic and will run entirely in your browser. There is nothing to install and it will even work on your phone! Use Chrome or Firefox for best results.

You can begin using the latest version of WXWarn from this site:


Developing and supporting WXWarn is a labor of love, but it requires resources, time and a lot of work! Severe weather can develop anywhere, anytime and we would like to keep WXWarn available for anyone who needs it. Rather than requiring registrations, we would like to continue to provide resources and support for WXWarn by your generous donations. Please help us keep WXWarn freely accessible for everyone. Chris, Kimberly and I are very grateful and deeply appreciate your continued support!

Thank you!

Reasons for WXWarn Rewrite

Since the core of what we do is Amateur Radio logging and contesting software, you're probably wondering why we decided to invest significant time and energy into completely rewriting WXWarn...

- While WXWarn is weather software, thanks to my son Chris, KB3KCN's adept coding skills, redeveloping WXWarn from the ground up has given us the opportunity for testing the implementation of many brand new approaches for our future logging software creations! We've been able to develop, test and implement the latest technologies that we can apply to our logging software's future vision!

- Before hurricane Ian, we had already started the WXWarn project. We were then further motivated, as Kimberly's sister lives near Ft. Myers, Florida, which is very near the worst of Ian's impact (their house took damage, but they are fine). As Ian's forecast track continued to deviate and decisions for riding out the storm or evacuating had to be made, receiving the latest storm forecast updates as soon as possible was essential. That's a big part of what WXWarn is designed to do. If WXWarn helps keep one person safe, it will have been more that worth our time for that reason alone.

- It's been over a decade since we've written a line of code for WXWarn, so while the old version 1.8 still functions fine, it has become quite long in the tooth. Even so, we've continued to receive support and encouragement from enthusiastic WXWarn users. We wanted to thank all those that have continued to support us by upgrading the software to a far better look and functionality.

Future Visions for N3FJP Software

Our WXWarn 2.0 release is our first tangible step towards the vision we have for our Amateur Radio software, so we wanted to share what we envision with you. First, a couple prefaces. We have every intention of continuing to develop and support our existing C# versions of our Amateur Radio logging software for as long as it is sensible, which, Lord willing, will likely be a very long time. The Amateur Radio logging programs you are using right now will continue to be available and we plan to keep improving them. Second, we have by no means conquered all the coding challenges for what we envision, so there is no certainty that we will accomplish this path. We have very little idea how long it might take, but the potential benefits make the attempt more than worthwhile to try.

The two most common questions we receive almost daily are:

- Will you write versions of your software for (insert favorite operating system)?
- Will you add support for contest (insert favorite contest)?

We are so very thankful for the passionate enthusiasm you have for our software, wanting more contests supported on additional operating systems! We share the desire to have a customizable, multi platform, easily deployable program that can be quickly configured for every contest. This will be a fresh, major, multi-year project that is in the long term planning process. It is at least several years out and still in the earliest brainstorming phase, but a single, customizable program that will be more easily adapted to new and currently unsupported contests is definitely part of our long term, future vision! We have a long way to go, but we have begun the initial feasibility steps and research to make this vision a reality!

Our WXWarn release is our first real world step towards our future vision. It will run on any browser (even phones) and there is nothing to install, so please give it a try! Then let us know how WXWarn is working for you by clicking Settings > Feedback.

Thanks in advance for helping us to test out what, Lord willing, will be an important branch of our Amateur Radio logging software's future path!

And in response to the questions we always receive when we neglect to include the following in our e-mail announcements...

Donations are Gratefully Accepted!

And in response to the often asked question for which Kimberly, Chris and I are very grateful...

"I know your upgrades are free, but I also realize how much time and effort support, coding these enhancements and new programs take and that your pricing policy doesn't fully reflect that. Can I send you something to show my appreciation for your continued efforts?"

Yes, thanks so much, your continued support in any amount is very welcome and deeply appreciated! You can use this page:
