What Weather Software should I use/buy? / Re: Weathercloud
« Last post by ocala on Today at 05:03:51 PM »
Thought I would give them another try and see if the ads were gone.
Only problem is I'm using Cumulus instead of Weatherlink and I'm running into a problem.
At the end of the installation instructions it says to "Run the ad-on program"
What program are they talking about? I stopped and restarted Cumulus thinking that might be it  but that didn't work.
Blitzortung / Amp settings
« Last post by orion_jb2001 on Today at 04:29:30 PM »
Hey brain trust,

Now that I am tweaking mode for the Blue, a refresh on amp settings.  For instance, a setting of 8 x 1 will give you a total gain of 320, however a reversed setting of 1 x 8 will also give you a total gain of 320. Now I imagine these amp figures are the same for red and blue, but what does the first figure represent or connected or controls what and what is the second figure represent or connected or controls what??
Ambient Weather Station / Re: WH2310 observations

This station is extremely accurate, and the batteries are still as strong as they were when I installed the station. All you need to do is make the temperature shield larger with some plates and it is spot on as long as no sun touches the factory shield. The anemometer is the most sensitive I have used. The issue I had above with the rain bucket was my fault. Somehow the calibration on the display was in the negatives, (below .10) and that is why the display kept showing no tips from the gauge. I don't understand why the makers of this station do not make a better temperature shield for it, and also give out longer cables. It is too good to not try it out, especially since it works with meteobridge... for the price it is a great unit.

I am installing the Burnsville template. I am having some issues the the sunlight pie not displaying the correct sunlight time.  Am I missing a setting somewhere that I over looked?
Thank you very much, Eno

Not shutting down until Dec 15th. With many pulling cameras as I have leaves open bandwidth for those staying until they disconnect cameras from servers.


Another possibility is there was a stale Cheeto stuck in the server cooling fan.

Thanks, Bushman.  Have ordered the adapter.

Yes.  Get a converter with a Prolific brand chipset.
Sorry, I must have annoyed shakasha by asking that question.
No just haven't been back in here. My regular work was backed up and had to catch up.

But yes, that's the station. We will raise it up another few feet, but that is where it is to stay. 15 minute updates will probably work fine for everyone but me. That's what WU is getting and it's OK. I'll burn out on updating the database two or three times a day, and can always check for the latest gusts during a storm. So I'll be fine as well.

All that said, I am happy with the system. Had somebody told me that we'd limited to 15 minute updates out of before we bought it (the salesman at Davis sure didn't bring it up and I didn't know there was a reason to ask), I would have done some more research, but likely would have done the same thing. No cables, we do not rely on power or internet, it is a stand-alone system and does the trick.

Can I use a serial to usb adapter to connect to my Vantage Pro to a Raspberry Pi running WeeWX?  Is there one better than another.  Or should I replace the logger with a usb model?

Thanks for the help,
