Weather Website PHP/AJAX scripting / Re: Curly's Wx Story script
« Last post by rrrick8 on Today at 10:19:49 PM »
has anyone worked on this script yet? I see mine will not load the image anymore.

Noticed this as well earlier today but haven't had a chance to dig into it yet.

I put them right next to each other earlier, and the VP2 would get a bad data packet while the Vue would keep getting good ones. It's also crazy to me how the Vue got so many consecutive good data packets while the VP2 got so much less.

Could be lots of reasons.  A few that I can think of:
1.  The Vue console is just more sensitive than the VP2
2.  The Vue console has better firmware than the VP2
3.  The Vue console is newer than the VP2, and age has reduced the performance of the VP2
4.  The Vue console has batteries that have higher voltage than the VP2 console, leading to better reception.
5.  The Vue console AC adapter is newer/better/higher voltage than the VP2 console's AC adapter.
6.  The Vue console has a better/newer antenna than the VP2 console (or was pointed slightly differently).
7.  Etc....

The "consecutive good data packets" is understandable due to the "frequency hopping" nature of the transmission methodology used by Davis.

All are valid reasons that could be a result. Honestly, as long as the Vue continues the better reception, I will stick with it for my data logging. The VP2 console is from 2/16 so it's almost 2 years old, which isn't that old. I think I got the Vue console in March this year if I remember correctly. Anyway, I'm glad not to be losing so many packets anymore!

Both are inside house, 75-80 degrees. They're both under 100' from ISS. I don't understand why, especially when it's cold outside, my VP2 console goes haywire (stops reporting wind and such and like I said reception drops into the 60s and 70s) while the Vue reports everything at nearly 100%. It has me baffled.

Lower temperature may reduce the RF strength (output) of the ISS transmitter.  The VP2 console receiver may just be a bit less sensitive than the Vue console.  Or it might just be the characteristics of the exact location of the two consoles.  If you're curious - you could try locating the VP2 console near where the Vue console is placed.  And with the antennas pointing the same.

Virtual Weather Station by Ambient / VWS compatible stations and comms
« Last post by RXB2 on Today at 07:24:27 PM »
Why is VWS sold on the Ambient website but Ambient Wx Stations are not included in the list of compatible Wx Stations?

Also, I have an Ambient WS-1001; could VWS communicate with either the station or the display wirelessly? Cable connections aren't an option.

Finally got it changed. Lastpass and Chrome are not playing friendly!

They said there was a computer glitch. Said it generated a pick order to the warehouse, but for whatever reason, it was not fulfilled. They found me one in New Jersey. Opened box, but in like new condition. They will ship that one to me. I guess that will have to do. I am glad to share my findings with those who may be interested. Enjoy your backup. LOL
