Sonde Radiosonde decoder for Windows and macOS
« on: March 18, 2019, 1723 UTC »
Sonde 0.2.0 is out for Windows and macOS. Sonde decodes LMS6 and Mark IIa radiosondes (weather balloons), so you can track them from launch to landing. Recover and return them to the NWS, or hang them on your wall as a trophy!

This is a major re-write of Sonde, and adds support for LMS6 radiosondes (weather balloons): https://www.blackcatsystems.com/software/radiosonde-decoder.html
