AcuRite Weather Stations / Re: Access Connection Issues
« Last post by nincehelser on Today at 02:15:58 AM »
Anyone figure out why the Access shuts down for hours? Mine struggled with my far 5 in 1 (60ft away) until I added a super long antenna. That helped that sensor but my Access still goes offline for no reason I can tell. The lights are all normal and the router shows it's connected but can't get the splash page to show up and yes I have the right ip address.
Note: I have a smartHUB connected also to the same three sensors and it does not have this issue.

Acurite contacted me asking about my issue but have yet to respond to my email. Did those of us with issues just get bad devices? I have two and they both have this issue. Thanks in advance for any help.

If you're not getting a splash page, then something is seriously wrong.

I've never heard of anyone having such a problem unless they have a wiring or network issue.

I just scrubbed through your chart for 2018-11-18 between 0520 and 0655 and it looks populated.
Send me a PM with specifics on where you still need help.

ATTENTION WU FIXERS: If you are still in the game...I've got an issue. I haven't any confidence in using support@ so I'll try here. At some point over the night, I lost over 820 data points in my chart details  :shock: starting at 10:31 PST on 11/15. In addition, my station was transitioned to "Off Line"  :roll:.  I am absolutely certain the data was there, as I pay close attention to my station reporting status and would clearly catch an error of that magnitude. I spent the last hour manually pushing the missing data elements via updateweatherstation.php. However in doing so, it refuses to load 10 data points between 2018-11-18 0520 PST and 2018-11-18 0655 PST. I would like to get that sorted with your help. Naturally while doing this little dance my station status has been nullified  ](*,).

Oh, and the Station Status details are MIA as well  #-o  ](*,)

Davis Instruments Weather Stations / Re: Davis 7714 shield corrosion problems
« Last post by Mattk on Yesterday at 11:53:16 PM »
Used to always rebuild these from scratch straight out of the box for the specific reason mentioned, corrosion especially in salt environments. Apart from the alloy top plate (which can also be etched and painted) the top and bottom bolts in these shields can be easily replaced with all stainless, SS metal threads for the 3 top mounting bolts and SS threaded rod for the bottom 3 plate rods. Only modification required depending on the threaded rod size is to tap the alloy plate threaded nuts.

I did not experience any issues with the Osprey last year with snow (Ohio).

We had freezing rain on Friday and it stopped reading rain and then several hours later wind direction (direction did not change).  Another hour and lost wind speed (0 MPH).  The wind speed and direction came back about 8 hours later  Rain fall reading did not come back until the next morning.
Other than reporting precipitation on the wrong days and amounts.

Chit-Chat / Re: Poll: Black Friday and Cyber Monday
« Last post by galfert on Yesterday at 10:41:17 PM »
I'm most probably not interested. I'm open to the possibility of finding something but I rarely if ever participate. I find that either I already have everything I want/need and I usually don't wait for these deal days. Also for me what I'm usually interested in never seems to go on sale anyway because I'm very particular about what brand/model I want. I also don't like extra stuff I don't really need cluttering up my life.

But I am interested in making this a year that I do buy something. So please share what you all are excited about and maybe I'll buy too.

Chit-Chat / Poll: Black Friday and Cyber Monday - The Good, the Bad...
« Last post by galfert on Yesterday at 10:34:25 PM »
Share what deals you find or are interested in for Black Friday or Cyber Monday. Does not have to be weather hardware / software related. This is chit chat so anything is fair game.

Do you always buy something or are you totally against these shopping events?

Share some past stories or tips.

WeatherUnderground / Re: Gold Stars are Back!!!
« Last post by galfert on Yesterday at 10:05:46 PM »
I just gained back my Gold Star a few hours short of 5 days since having lost it from a 3 minute router reboot. My hardware never reported bad data. According to CWOP and AWEKAS I'm tracking perfectly with neighbors on all sensors. My alternative WU ID with same data (different software) a never lost it.

I know we shouldn't be laying any credibility in the Gold Stars but I just can't help but trying to figure out what logic or reasoning they have programmed.

It has been rather interesting to see Gold Stars awarded for a newly reporting station (no 5 day history). And now a station that lost the Gold Stars has earned it back within less than 5 days.

If that's with free shipping good deal. Scaled instruments sells them little cheaper but doesn't include shipping.

The bolts that connect the radiation shield to the mounting bracket are #8 screws 2.75 inches length.  The Davis 7714 shield only costs $57.00 from Amazon which is a very low price.   I do not know how long this price will last so I bought one,
