By AussieJohn:

I have found that when you manually enter the 4 letter code in 
kweather.rc in .kde, you must make sure that the code is only in capital 
letters and make sure that kweather is not already on your Panel.
Type in the 4 capital letter code and remember to save the change. Only 
then mount kweather on the panel and don't press the buttons relating to 
station code in kweather because this will wipe the code from 
kwearther.rc and you will be back where you started. You usually need to 
log out then back in and it should work OK.

Does this help at all ???

Albany W.A. code is now YABA

Formerly it was YPAL

All Australian airports now start with a "Y"
