not long now and its looking good i been testing another 3rd unit last 3 weeks and its good , pay attention to sensor location and you will be a happy man ive posted what i do over on the weatherflow community forum and the technology is relatively new so  you will see variances but follow the guideline of installation from the weatherflow forums and you wont be disappointed however ignore those install criterias and your on a path to disappointment.

feel,free to email anytime for any tips .. however the last unit was straight out the box up on the mast pole and job done in 10minutes..

OK. That solved the issue - must have been reading m/s. All is well now.

Looking forward to receiving my Weatherflow units.

Hi Brian,

The new AQI module looks great!

I noticed an odd data point on my template this morning. My Wind Module is showing the correct value for the MAX Wind Gust, but the MAX Wind is incorrect. The Today Graph shows the correct values. You can see it here:

Any ideas?

Please disregard my earlier email. I was not sure that you were still messaging here.

Best wishes!

what is showing in the livedata screen in meteobridge ?  ms or mph values no problem

Meteo live is showing avgwind max (5.3 m/s and 11.9 mph).

Ok, I see that your setup is significantly different than mine. I was assuming that your pole was part of the fence supporting structure like mine rather than an independent, free standing pole.  As for the weight difference on the Davis Vue vs the AW all I can say is that comparing the VP2 Plus to either my original AW WS-1400 or the later WS-2902 station is like comparing an economy car to a bus.  My Davis hardware is significantly heavier and WAY larger than the AW hardware it replaced.  Granted, you are considering the Vue rather than VP2, but still the pole you are currently using may be questionable for the Vue hardware.  Depending on the prominent wind direction in your area, it might be possible to guy wire the pole to either the fence or the ground to stabilize it in that plane.

interesting, i read that you could view a console control of the WLIP in any web browser and change settings there without having to install the PC software. i also read it comes out of the box defaulting to recording WX for weatherlink at a rate of once every 60 seconds. i'll know so enough because i have one on the way and I'm a Mac user only.

It's out there.

Yes, I know, but just saying that there's been no prior announcements AFAIK, though that's certainly not uncommon for minor firmware updates.

the picture below shows my current setup with the Ambient Weather WS-1401 on top where the Vantage Vue will go. I have to measure it out but the "extension" (you can see it if you zoom in) only really gets me an extra 8 inches maybe so I'm not sure it is worth it, but on the other hand I don't think it contributes to extra flex either so I figure I might as well use it. The 1 3/8" fence tubing is 2 feet into concrete but it will sway in very high winds, but only ever so slightly. It is more like a "vibration." My rainfall totals in the WS-1401 were always accurate to other PWS in the area so I lived with it and I'm not sure it affected anything, although in hindsight I would use stronger, larger diameter tubing. I sure don't want to dig up my concrete though without at least trying the current setup. Connecting it to the fence isn't an option because the fence also sways. I believe guy-wires that connect to the ground deeply would also work but then I have increasing issues with mowing?

Not sure if you were using the "Transformafence" adapter between your fence pole and  the bottom of the AW station.  I too used AW hardware for about 18 months and used that device which as you describe gave me about a foot of additional height.  The difference in my setup was that I clamped another 12ft section of 2 3/8" heavy gauge fence pole to my well footed fence pole such that my station was at roughly 15ft.  I used 3 fence pole to timber U-brackets back to back to secure the two poles together (3 such clamps over a 4 ft section).  You might consider doing the same even if you did not go as high as I did.  Never had ANY issues with movement regardless of wind, but then the fence pole is deeply secured in concrete, 2 3/8" diameter and at a corner such that there is another identical pole on the right angle side of the corner making that location VERY rigid.

I recently switched to a Davis Vantage Pro2 Plus, so now all that is mounted at the very top is my anemometer/wind vane (I retained the Transformafence).  The rest of the station I mounted at about the 10ft level so as to keep it above curious hands height but within reach using a tall step ladder.  In the attached pics, you can see the Transformafence adapter at the top of the pole.  Unfortunately the small company that made these well designed little adapters was undercapitalized apparently and closed up shop despite being offered on the AW site.
