This station even has a built in 2.4ghz Doppler radar under the dome. It knows if the precipitation is rain or snow!!

Maybe in 5 years there will be a Chinese sourced copy that will cost under $750.00 and be solar powered and wireless.

Comms are good, simple and open source, power requirements are really getting up there?
