  1. has the vane been installed on the spindle correctly or slipped lose maybe worth checking
  2. Well I am feeling left out, I have been waiting all week for the "heavy snow weather warning" beast from east, what do I get up here in Orkney, one inch of level snow,and that's melting quickly, why that needs a weather warning I don't know. I am enjoying the pictures though so keep them coming, I'm very jealous.
  3. if it is always off by the same amount have a look at the calibrate option. if you can adjust for that much error on the console?
  4. I think its the same as this one fine offset and I think the usb is just for factory update and doesn't work but there is some software called weather link ip that may help. Your best bet is to contact aercus and ask them. there is also the the maplin version called n23dq their website has lots of questions that may help.
  5. what model ? I didn't think they had usb
  6. I'm sorry to say I have returned two of these stations to maplins both with faulty temp sensors. Luckily both in warranty, so I got a refund for the second replacement unit and I got a vantage vue instead, so far it's been a lot more reliable.
  7. Measuring wind gradient

    with that height and having it portable, I would think sectional pole with guy ropes is the only option. how temporary is the installation going to be?
  8. vantage vue battery cover

    Thanks everybody, at least I have not lost a part of my iss . I will try some tape over the battery cover and see if that stops the water getting in. condensation draining / drying is a thought, but as it is already wet and corroded in the battery compartment it isn't working, even if that's how it was intended to.
  9. Hi all, quick question, should the vantage vue iss have a seal around the battery cover? Mine hasn't and looks like it should have, but I can't remember if it ever did. I changed the battery and found water was getting in and corroding the contacts. Is this a known thing and has anybody got any good ideas how to stop it or where to get a seal if it should have one? Thanks
  10. The maplin N23dq is also worth a look if reliability or accuracy aren't too important the reviews are mixed, Maplins are good at swapping the faulty ones. Now that makes them sound bad, but they do everything, are easy to set up and have good displays and internet connectivity out of the box.
  11. Is it just the internal memory filling up and over writing itself. The only sure way to keep long term data is to connect it to a pc and or upload to the internet like the weather underground
  12. Weather Station recommendations

    The davis system is well made but expensive as you've found, the issue is made worse by data loggers if you want your data online the usb logger needs a pc to be on to upload the data now I may be wrong here but I think I read the ip logger only uploads to the davis site which needs a further subscrition. Also the davis vantage vue doesn't record sun as mentioned in your first post.
  13. I found this while looking for a new weather station http://www.foshk.com/Wifi_Weather_Station/WH2900.html Has anybody found them for sale anywhere or have any thoughts on them I am hoping they are an improvement over the hp1000 and 1001 by the same company.
  14. Mounting Setup

    not as long as you would like but with a little searching how about 5 or 6 inch steel that should make it straight and ridged https://www.themetalstore.co.uk/products/6-metre-length-10swg-mild-steel-tube Anyway the height you want is going to give problems of one sort or another so you need to decide what your compromise is cost, bendy, problems erecting, etc there will be an answer but finding it may take a while.
