Please be aware, that the rubrics are send in corresponding [transmittergroupgeneral|TX groups]]. Weather 80 (RIC 1080) is a good example: It uses the regional TX group. This means, if you add 80/1080 to your pager, you will get (only) the Tyrolean weather info, if you are in OE7 (TX group OE-OE7), and when you move on to Salzburg, you will get the weather from OE2 (TX group OE-OE2).
