For those of you who generate your own forecasts using WxSim software, Tom E. added a new feature this week that takes the Eclipse into account for your location when generating a forecast for Monday. For my location, which has about 76% coverage, I'm showing a 0.6 degree drop in temperature over the Eclipse period versus a 3 degree rise when turning off the Eclipse effect.

AcuRite Weather Stations / Re: Acurite Lightning Detector Sensor Tear-Down

I curious for anyone who has opened the lightning detector case -- where you able to get it sealed back up again?

On my first sensor, the little piezo buzzer seems to have died - so I want to see if it's possibly just debris or not to hard to solder in a replacement.

I just ordered the evaluation kit from DigiKey, who is figuratively just up the road from me.

I've gotten some good stuff in eval kits, for less than parts sometimes.  I guess they put this together to have designers try things out and maybe build a million of something.

The interesting thing about this particular setup is that it uses low energy bluetooth to communicate too, so I could stick it in one of my many radiation shields and read the temp and humidity through a glass window with my cellular phone.  That alone is worth the $30 to fiddle with.  I see this same company has a pressure chip demo kit, too, and wonder how it would work out as a barometer?

 #-o  Ignore pretty much everything I posted in the last three days.

I had the A & B inputs of my RS422/485 converter reversed which seems to have the effect of inverting and shifting bits.  Long story short, the raw ISS-to-console data packets ARE almost identical to the STRMON/RF packets with the one exception that there are no checksum bytes (thus 6 bytes instead of 8 ).  If I find anything interesting, I'll post more.

Success! I installed the latest raspian image on the pi (I was using Ubuntu before when I tried) and these commands worked perfectly. 
Code: [Select]
ebtables -t broute -A BROUTING -p IPv4 --ip-protocol 6 --ip-destination-port 80 -j redirect --redirect-target ACCEPT
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i br0 -p tcp --dport 80 -j REDIRECT --to-port 8000


Has anyone been able to get this technique to work w/ ubuntu/debian/centos?  It worked fine w/ raspian but I can't get it to work at all with Ubuntu 14.04.  The commands go in, but the posts from the hub (which I can see w/ tcpflow) are not getting redirected.

Interesting. Looks like telephone wiring. Should be easy to replace if needed. All depends on the connectors at each end.

I then securely wrapped the repaired wires with good ol' electrical tape (not the most water tight, I know). Anemometer has been functioning normally since the repair this afternoon.

Wrap your electrical tape with a product like Silicone Self-sealing tape. If it is out of direct sunlight, it will outlast the cable. It is not too expensive and it is an item that you will find multiple places where it comes in handy. It is a good item to keep along with your duct tape and WD40.
