Sorry, Brian, I don't know.  Victoria was collecting PWS WU station names and existing WU API keys into a list (and likely still is).
When you receive an email from her, then you can do the signup for a new API key.  The signup page isn't linked in the member's WU area.. it's currently accessable via direct URL link (and you have to have signed into the WU site beforehand).

Yes, only a few developers/beta testers got the key. Just to test the "key obtaining procedure"

I would ask you not to share the URL and instructions widely yet -- I picked a small handful from my full email list so that I could adequately handle any questions or problems individually (the down side of being only one person).

Also the current procedure is a temporary one:

You may notice that the link for the API keys looks different from the usual Members page on WU.  It's a pre-production release, just for WU PWS API users.

Thanks, Wim, I was beginning to wonder! I'll just wait for my e-mail from Victoria, then  :wink:
It's meant to be fun. . .

WU-hoo!  :)  "The gateway for the new API keys for PWS uploaders is open."

AND the old one (if associated with an uploading PWS) will continue to work until 22 March. . .
It's meant to be fun. . .
