I set up a beta text message service to allow folks to access the latest observation from any NDBC buoy or land station on the Great Lakes via a simple text message. I am posting it here so that folks can check it out and let me know if they use it, if it worked, and was the data useful. Right now this service is underwritten by LimnoTech, however if its used by alot of people we will look to continue it in coming years with outside support. To use the text message service simply do the following 1. Look up the station ID at http://bit.ly/ndbcstations 2. Text the station number (in the body of the message) to 734-418-7299 I tried to find a really fast server to put the service on so you should get a reply back in a few seconds. Let me know if you find this useful and stick the number in your phone as you'll never know when you'll need it! If you'd rather hear someone read you the reading over the phone just use NDBC's Dial-A-Buoy Number Call 888-701-8992 or 301-713-9620 and key in the same buoy ID. Ed
