How can I change the Owner Name for my PWS? One of my neighbors PWS shows its owner name as "RHAVA" but my PWS shows as "--". Note: I found the owner name within the Weather Underground app by clicking on the station name at the top then clicking "About this Weather Station"

Right now on the live web page, new stations are shown on the city forecast pages with the "public" name -- usually based on the town or neighborhood.  The name given by the PWS owner is show on the PWS dashboard. 

Some older stations have different public names that were grandfathered into the current system.

Does this mean I am able to modify/change the owner name? If I can, how do I do it?

Go to My Devices and edit the PWS.
