TAF and METAR's to your mobile

Just in case this one has passed you by you can get TAF's and METAR's direct to your mobile (if it's got wap).

The service is provided by avbrief and is excellent and free, the address you need to put in your phone you want to use it is


Whoever set this one up will certainly be getting a free pint off me.

Mobile TAF/Metar

Alternatively, send a text message of the required airfield (4 letter ICAO) to +4540606361. Returned text message is very quick - less than 15 secs normally!
