Weather Website PHP/AJAX scripting / Re: advforecast2.php
« Last post by gwwilk on Today at 08:38:05 AM »
As of yesterday afternoon advforecast2.php is falling over to a stale zone forecast here.  I deleted the cache file, but it was just recreated with the same stale data.

I went to the OAX site looking for the point forecast, and it's there.

I'm not sure what the problem is.  Here's the relevant output from advforecast2.php:

Code: [Select]
     <!-- advforecast2.php (JSON) - V5.04 - 11-Oct-2017 on PHP 5.4.19-->

<!-- loaded cache file ./cache/forecast-NEZ066-0-json.txt - 7861 bytes -->
<!-- point forecast more than 12hrs old (age h:m:s is 18:40:18) .. use Zone forecast instead -->

<!-- META

    [fireWeatherZone] => NEZ066
    [timeZone] => America/Chicago
    [radarStation] => KOAX
    [zoneName] => Lancaster
    [WFOname] => Omaha/Valley, NE

It looks like even though the OAX site is using the current point forecast the API isn't working.  Anything to do but wait for them to fix the issue?
What Weather Station Should I Buy? / Re: Looking for buying advice

Can you also access it via web locally?
You can access the ObserverIP locally to do the setup and calibration. There is also a tab to display Live Data (figure 25) in the OIP manual. You also use this tab to set/reset rain totals if you need to. It is more for troubleshooting and not very useful for every day observation.
The newest firmware version of the OIP disables Telnet to OIP so I don't think you will be able to change port 80.

Has the wireless and Internet been reliable?
I my case, yes. The indoor unit loose connection to the OIP every now and then for a short time period, but I think it is due to the location of the indoor unit to the OIP. I placed the OIP to have best connection to the outdoor unit.

Out the box it post data to WU and Ambient weather to view your data remotely.

Hope this help.
Now using new weather display API , MADE A LOT OF PROGRESS this morning exchanging numerous emails with Brian of weather display software  so 85% done , mysql is already just need to iron out a few data values within the API itself and hopefully have it done before I go away for a few weeks . if it doesnt get done im sure it will be all done soon after i get back..

screenshot running of a live api from brians weather station  .. just a few teethings issues to resolve and thats it ..

Happened again this morning. When I picked up the hub and moved it just a bit, instant reconnect. So if this issue comes up for someone else, try moving it first. It may help reestablish the connection.
I see, thanks. :-)  I expected differences between the console and Wunderground but differences within the console seems odd to me.
Hi Simon

Glad it works.

No, sorry, don't know if it is possible to incorporate a link in a image, but on a homepage you can make the entire image into a link:

Blitzortung / Help with Red H Field Amplifier
« Last post by Silversword on Today at 02:31:35 AM »
Hi All,

It has been a long time since I have been here.  Hope all is well with all.

I have an issue with my Red H Field Amplifier. 

My controller was giving me a low voltage issue and was kinda cycling trying to re-boot.  Did some troubling shooting and came up that the H Field amplifier was the issue as I have an E Field system too. When I had a chance a couple of days later I went on the roof to see what the H Field box condition was. The container had sprung a leak.  I found over and inch of water in the box.  The amplifier board was soaked in that water for about a week or so.  Took the antenna system apart and took the ferrites out of the PVC and dried them out.  I think those are okay. 

The amplifier board was a mess.  I cleaned it up as much as possible and dried it up over my weather computer that has some heat and moving air to really dry it up.  Took a chance to see if it might be still functional and powered it up.  The red LED came on and the amber LED's blinked 4 times.  The green LED did not come on.  I pushed on the re-set button but nothing happened, so I just powered it down and powered it up again and the same result.  So I hope that the board might be okay but the re-set button might not be working.

I still need to put it all back together and see what happens.

Just in case that this amplifier board is bad, I am wondering if there are any of you might have one that is sitting in the closet that you might want to find a place to be used.

It may take more than a week for me to put it all back together for testing and reconstruction of the box to be more water resistant.

In the mean time I am using the E Field antenna system where I had the H Field connected on the controller system that would be the one closest to the GPS   When I tried to put the E Field system to the one next to it is not really stable for some reason but where I have it now seems to be working, at least I think so. Any suggestions or comments about this temporary setup would be appreciated.

I did write to Egan about getting a replacement kit for the Red H Field but he replied that they no longer have it in stock. So, if this board is gone I hope that there might be a replacement to be found somewhere out there.

Thanks again for any suggestions or comments on my issue on this subject.

What Weather Station Should I Buy? / Re: Looking for buying advice

Thanks for the input on the ambient system. Can you also access it via web locally? Can you set the web port to other than 80? Has the wireless and Internet been reliable?

What Weather Station Should I Buy? / Re: All in one and birds
« Last post by Bashy on Today at 12:57:06 AM »
All in ones that have the anny speed top of the unit appear to get away with it. unlike a Davis VP , birds seem to love them....
I wonder if its cause of the spinning being above? With my VP2 i had to mount the anny just below the OS anny, least that
way the birds will perch on the OS and not the Davis....
Thanks.  Of course, the diagnostics are only "interesting" when something is not working correcty.
