I am new to weather stations and have bought a WS8686.

Every thing is working fine except for one thing.

On the display, bottom left, the Sun elevation is shown together with Sunrise and Sunset times.

My times never change day by day.  The only way they are altered is if I modify my Lat/long settings.

Surely they should show different times each day?  Any  thoughts, anybody, please?

How long you had it? There won' t be much change on the sunrise/sunset times at the moment i would of thought. Mine has been the same for a few days also.

Example for my location today is only 39 seconds shorter than yesterday.

I'm assuming you have entered your correct lat/lon in the settings?

Thanks for reply. I've had it 2 weeks.

Yes I have entered my Lat/long correctly.  I shall wait and see if it changes.

I saw your weather station website. Very impressive.  10 miles from mine !

You even have UK earthquake reports. I have a vertical and a horizontal home built seismometer I am in process of setting up, using Dataq software to record.

Can you post the lat/long here and also post a screenshot of the display showing what lat/long you've entered?

In some cases, users haven't entered the details quite right.

I entered the exact lat/lon as displayed on the setup screen shot photo shown.  52.0000 North and 1.0000 West.

The sun has still not changed its rise and set times on the main display.

Change it to this:

North: 52.7492
West: 1.4686

Thanks for your help. I have changed it to what you have suggested.

Of course, the Sun rise/set times have now changed slightly as would be expected.

The proof of the pudding will be if they change over a few days or not.

I will post here on the outcome.

Thanks again.

I think I've found the answer.  I bought my W8686 on 18th June. It's now 30th.

This straddles the Summer Solstice when the Sun rise/set times show the smallest

variation each day.  Hence little change.

Should have bought it in March or Sept at the Equinoxes!  ?
