Connecticut Station: Acurite 5 in 1 Pro Plus
« on: November 10, 2017, 06:45:03 PM »
I had issues posting via mobile previously, hopefully this works!  I took these pics in late August. 

A few shots of the station mounted to our shed in the flatlands.  It's been working well for the last few months. I love having remote access to conditions!  The HD display is the first thing I check when I make my way to the kitchen in the morning. 





I used a this to ensure the mounting pole was plumb.  Worked perfectly! 



Same antenna mount I used on the station up in Vermont.

I would.  I use lithiums year-round in my 5n1s. 

I always change mine in the fall even if I'm not getting a low battery warning.   That way I can avoid a battery change in the dead of winter.

That certainly would be nice! Unfortunately, both of my systems are mounted far away from any power sources. At least they have some solar operability with the internal fan.
