The setup menu now contains two options; Program Setup and
Map Landmarks. The Map
Landmarks option will be used to setup landmarks that are to be

The Landmark text supports two special characters.
Placing a period (.) symbol in the text field, results in a

Clicking on an active alert, on the map, will now show
all messages for that county. The
messages will be separated by a short dashed line.
Corrected the spelling for thunderstorm on the map legend.
If a permission error occurs while trying to
automatically save the map image, a message is displayed in the
status box alerting the operator that the map image is in use.
Corrected a problem with the map range calculation

alarms for clients. Note:

Corrected the latitude for Morgan County, Kentucky.
This required updating the County_F and County_Z files.
The sample alarm file, included with the full install,
no longer contains any pager or email alarms.
Each user will have to establish these as necessary.
The “Client” field on the alarm grid has been changed to
accept the values “No”, “Yes”, or a number from 1 to 50.
This number corresponds to client id’s setup for each
Message Client. This
capability will now allow you to send alarms to specific clients.
For example client #1 wants the zone forecast, while client
#2 only wants warnings. This
can easily be accomplished by setting the “Client” field to 1
for the zone forecast, and “Yes” for warnings.
Setting the “Client” field to “Yes” results in all
clients receiving the alarm.
The Alarm grid has been expanded to
support 75 alarms.
Corrected a subscript error when
setting the parse option to “Y” and having no words in the WxWords.dat
Added new program, WxScheduler, to
schedule user generated weather messages.
