Mini-ITX Weather Radar Display Project for NWS NEXRAD Doppler Radar

Dsc00626This case mod project was something I’ve been wanting to do for some time, ever since I started using a weather radar program called StormPredator in our radio station KPAY where I’m a meteorologist. The neat thing about the StormPredator program is that it has a “round” interface and looks like a real radar scope. It was just begging for some round display PC hardware to match but who makes round LCD panels or round color cathode ray tubes? By doing a case mod, I’ve created a “weather radar appliance” that automatically boots and performs a dedicated function – watching for storms. Link.
