I am unable to get wind direction. I've tried several major locations and such... but just keep getting a blank spot.

There is no wind direction option, only wind speed and wind description. The direction is within the description so I assume you mean that. If any of the fields come back blank then the weather station is not reporting it.

It has to be reported by that particular weather station. PM me the station you are using.

Mike, I watched the videos and found that I was limiting myself to like Airport Metars and could use local personnal owned weather stations. Works great now... and the videos are great!!

Thank you, unfortunately, BI Tools will not pull data from that site as far as I know.
