    So equipment wise what would you use?

    Is this a module to connect to your cell phone or ham radio?

    ESP-8266 is a microcontroller with built in WIFI, so its connected to the internet via his wifi router.

    Look more closely at Post #1: is a 'secure' website. He also posted the source of the code used. ( That is twice ). If you click on his QRZ Page (callsign) ( blue block to the left , then Detail Tab), you note that the QRZ website has a map which you can 'zoom in or out' regarding his location ( aye? ) No APRS through that map, there should not be. His APRS weather map is a different one. Now try clicking on that 'pink area' ( the blue letters turn 'pink' when your cursor is over them ) that has the https:// as I just specified. His site gives weather information for his area ( aye? ). Yet it first gives the link to the code, aye? The word 'aye' is an affirmative sometimes used to check for understanding, rather than 'yes/no?'. That is a popular way to end a sentence in Canada, aye? Note the time and conditions update, aye? Note that it is a "Google" map when you pick the second option on his site, aye?

    I thought it was "EH"
    "AYE" makes me think of popeye the sailer or a pirate "AYE AYE Captain" :D:D

    nice esp8266 article. They're very handy. Just started playing with an ESP32 and managed to get it to do some wx icons.
    Isn't it possible to route the web page directly thru the router to the internet without blink or other services?
    I do that with my generator/sump pump monitor as a text display
