weewx Software / New PWS stops original one sending data
« Last post by meteoman on Today at 04:31:56 PM »
I have a remote PWS connected by raspberry pi which has been sending data to Wunderground and CWOP since 2015.
I have now set up a second one at a different location using weewx, also on a raspberry pi which is currently active.
The original PWS stopped sending data to Wunderground when the new one started up. I am not sure what has caused this problem. The station ID and passwords are different for each PWS
Both are still sending data to CWOP, so both stations are still online, but the Wunderground service has stopped for the past few days on my original station.
Has anyone had a similar problem?

All I use is a gallon milk jug with a hole poked in the bottom corner. Sits in the cone just fine. Certainly not a NovaLynx calibrator, but a heck of a lot cheaper and it works.

Yeah, large, well, 1.75L bottles

If that won't stand easily in your manual gauge, perhaps the 500mL bottle would work (for both tests, of course).

The important thing is to get as close to "identical" test setups as possible.

H Andy, just in case this helps, when I updated to version 15 I also had a similar problem, after looking at the folder structure I noticed the 'backup' folder was not there in the first place, so I created it with Filezilla and then the update performed perfectly.

Yes, i will try but not sure it will be possible, depends on if i can balance the bottle on it, I will video it next time just to show
whats what :)

Oh.  It was a big coke bottle?  [or a small manual gauge?]

Not trying to find fault - just trying to understand how you are doing this. 

My bad, sorry, just felt like it..

I do have one suggestion for "verification".  [Perhaps you have already done this]

Do the same test on your manual gauge.  Same bottle, same rate, etc.  [Since you're getting a new bottle, then repeat on your Davis].

I'm afraid with the new updated digital sht31 specs they went +/- 3% in the 90-100% range for max tolerance at 25C.  So 97-98% may be as good as it gets. I tested one of the test board versions in a plastic bag the other day using hot cloth and got 100.8% so it actually went over at about 40C temperature.
