Start on page 11 here.
I recently had a similar problem and adjusted the time using these instructions.

Going back and re-reading the instructions provided a better understanding.  Was able to adjust the time without clearing the historical data.

Thanks again to all who responded.

Thanks for replying guys....my unit is on a post that's about 2 metres high - exactly the same position as my last WH1900(?) which gave me no problems with wind speed (until it filled up with an ants' nest and stopped working!) During windy weather, it regularly reported speeds of 40 or so kph. My new WH2900 only reports 4 or 5 kph and the cups are spinning madly.
I adjusted the calibration which WAS on a factor of 50% (?!) up to 150%, but even now, it only reports about 6 to 8 kph when I have evidence that at its location point, the wind speed is MUCH higher - around 45kph. My thoughts are faulty hardware.

Also BTW, if you do get a Davis, and stick it on the roof, I wouldn't mess with a VP2, just get a Vue, considerably less dinero.

You're going to have several issues with this placement, foremost, will you even be able to receive a wireless signal. By far the best best here will be a Davis, and even then that's no guarantee. You can most likely forget an Ambient unless your console will be on the floor directly beneath it. Then you've got the problem of maintenance/access to the roof. Not only, with this sitting, the only data that probably won't be skewed is the wind. GL.

So you are talking about the wireless link from the sensor head to the base unit? Davis has a range quoted as 1000 feet. Ambient doesn't show a range for theirs heads. So that is one big question. Sounds like you are saying that the range for the Ambient products is much less?
Yes, the Davis range is much greater, and being you're only talking 3 stories, I feel confident you could receive a Davis, especially if you horizontally align the antennas, which they are capable. BTW the Davis "head" is referred to as an ISS (Integrated Sensor Suite) and the base unit is called a console. If you don't want to spend Davis money, I suppose you could try something else, but I'd be certain it's returnable if it doesn't work.

Is there any way of purchasing this from Australia yet? Dying to try it out. I'm using the Australian version of the Vue with belfryboy's logger currently.

Please just contact us at sales@weatherstations.co.uk . Once we've got details and checked shipping price then we can send a Paypal invoice.

Done, thanks.

Thanks for the tips, guys.  Will try and report back.

For Davis stations Davis has the WeatherlinkIP data logger, a direct wiring from console to router; an alternate to direct computer connection.
For Davis stations the third party WiFiLogger, as linked to on my previous post, has a Wifi connection from console to router, a direct replacement to WeatherlinkIP and slso more uploads.
Meteobridge is also a third party option for Davis stations.


Enjoy,
Paul

....Not sure what to do about the baro only issue. Is this the base (non Pro) setup?....

No, Baro issue has absolutely nothing to do with Base v Pro, Davis just need to fix their stuff. This is not a pro v free issue
