Used to love - they've stopped updating

This app was wonderful, pulling in data from all over but they stopped updating in August this year and I've finally accepted that they must be done.

looks good, needs more Calif. stations

We're in the San Francisco Bay area. This application only goes as far south as Cape Mendocino. When will you expand farther south?
