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.

Have you checked settings on Cumulus.
Here is what my cumulus internet settings looks like.
Rapid fire works fine on 2 different stations.

Thank you so much for your help Droiddk,

This has worked perfectly!

The resulting image with conditions overlay can be seen here: -

Now this is a long shot, but do you think there is any way of making all or part of the image clickable to my website?
I haven't had hands on a Davis or RMY project for ages, so I'm guessing now.  You may be able to 'steal' 3 volts from the Davis SIM.  Try  connecting the Q1/R7 to the black wire coming from the Davis.  This wire is pulled up to +3v in the Davis SIM.  If the RMY to Davis cable doesn't need too much drive.  Davis keeps +3v on this wire until the reed switch grounds it.
Check that the LM393 will respond to a wind speed signal of 336mv which is 10Hz.
Works fine for me. It looks like you have dedicated hosting from what I can tell.

It should be working for everyone now. Those who had issues accessing it are reporting its working for them now. Once my bloggers are settled in, Ill merge WQs content under it and pull the plug on WQ. Excited about working with the WT team to continue giving people a place to blog about the weather with WU and WBs communities now shut down, and I expect WT to do well for the long haul.
