Buying a weather station

Recommended Posts

I bought the ws3600 about 4 weeks ago only managed to put it up 2 weeks ago and its really good works really well, the best bit about it is the history data it collects and you download it onto the pc, i do need to move my wind vane and rain gauge as its been windy the tree near the rain gauge has been sheltering it from the rainfall, and the wind vane isnt catching the wind properly, but it works sweet none the less. :)

Not a hope I'm afraid....it'll be Monday now I should think.

I've got a simple spreadsheet which I input my data onto and now have ten years' worth.

You can have a copy if you like...it works a treat.

Nice one...I didn't think anyone delivered on a Saturday unless you paid a fortune (or used Royal Mail and by some fluke your postman isn't on strike)

I've just been given a plastic rain gauge. I think someone might have widdled in it last night because it's rather full.

Sorry Wibs, I did have rather a lot to drink!!

I too am setting up my wx station today, WS2300 also with Weather Display software. I Have had it for a number of months but have had problems siting it because I live in a terraced house so Ive just taken delivery of a 10' mast which will get the anemometer above roof level so its gets the wind from all directions.

Mine is about 50ft up on a counterbalanced mast so it's easy to lower down. I did find one problem though and that is one of interference being picked up when I was TXing. Funny thing though, it only affected the rain gauge readings and the bucket is on the floor. :lol:

Where going to put mine on top of the shed on a small mast post. For time bieing till we get a shed (2months) (Where still doing the garden) I am going to put it on top of a fence panal. It shuld get the wind from all directions of the fence post however if it doesn't it will only be there for a few months. The problem at the moment is where am i going to put the rain gauge. The backgarden is still a load of soil with a small path. I don't want to put it a front because i will never see it again. Where has everyone esle got theres?
