Linux Driver for the
RadioShack 12-258 S.A.M.E. Weather Radio

Introduction

RadioShack made a S.A.M.E. Weather Radio (12-258) that had a USB jack on it. Using the software that came with it, one could connect it to a computer and receive weather alerts on the host computer. As I recall, it was even capable of sending email in response to alerts. Unfortunately, the software was only available for an inferior but wildly common operating system. I wondered if it might be possible to get it to work with Linux. And, thus, this project was born.
