what happens if WU pull the plug on personal weather station data too?
all these cheap weather stations advertising and promoting and using WU as a way to get data will be up a creek with no paddle

LaCrosse Technologies/Hyundai / Re: C84428 station and WeatherUnderground

Thanks for the tips. What's annoying is that the station clearly has Wifi capabilities to communicate with the LaCrosse iOS App. It probably not a hard programming job to enable some sort of upload to WU. I think it's just a features issue to force people who want to report to WU to a higher priced product.

Unfortunately (for them), I'm not paying an extra $100 plus for the weather station (http://www.lacrossetechnology.com/330-2315-professional-weather-underground)  that does report to WU. Sure, it probably has other features to differentiate it, but in the end, it's a significantly more expensive product.

WOW, most winters don't get as low as ZERO here.  That cold air arrived this morning.  It will only be around freezing thing afternoon.  Low expected is 20.

I looked for Stillwater airport but all data was missing. Here is nearby station goes back 100+ years averages 1.1 below zero days yearly.

The point you're trying to make is unfounded.  My weather records go back to 2009.  Since 2009, there was only one winter in which the temp sunk below zero.  So I looked over the Stillwater airport records made available by WU starting at 2008.  I got tired of wasting time looking as far back as 1998, because I couldn't find any winter month with a below zero temp low.  So I continue to stand by my word that it is rare here for a winter to have any below zero temps.

Thanks for the interesting chart.  Most of the record temperature extremes go back well before I was born.

I wasn't making a point at all. How does 1 day a year mean something other than rare?
If anything it was substantiating what you said as rare and News Flash weather records do go beyond our lifetime.
   
I did find the airport extreme mins since 1996 and 4 below zero days at least have occurred, all since 2011.

There was a 30 amp power supply above the console, an LDG autotuner and an IC-7100 transceiver below it.  There was  a Motorola speaker on one side, with nothing on the other side.

I did have the console right next to my radio gear, and I have now moved if a few feet away.  I will do more testing.

Thanks all!

I'm glad I asked.  Now is the time to remove all power (battery and AC) from the console, wait a minute, and restore power.  That might get the barometric reading back - although I doubt it.

After you get a replacement console, it would apparently be advisable to not have it right next to your radio gear.

Out of curiosity - exactly what piece(s) of equipment was it near?

Ambient Weather Station / "Can not find Wi-Fi Network"
« Last post by Sherry on Yesterday at 06:00:38 PM »
A few months ago I got a WS 1001 and it's worked well (except for intermittent failures to connect to wifi) but now wifi seems gone for good. There's no wi-fi icon on panel and the wi-fi scan replies "Can not find Wi-Fi network" even though other devices are connected to same wi-fi with no problem.

So far I've tried turning both the panel and wifi off and back on again; resetting the panel and reentering everything, including WU station key; and turning off all other devices connected to the wifi. But nothing has worked so far.

I am leaving this house soon and will have no access to panel and wifi, so hope to hear from someone soon! Thank you!

Thanks Dale,
I know Gord and him being a HAM, could this be an issue because of his other equipment in the house?

Paul
What frequencies does he transmit on? Are they in (near or a multiple of) the ISS's 902-928MHz bandwidth?
Not saying it can't, but how would RF affect a baro sensor?
It (RF) would NOT affect the sensor itself, but rather its ELECTRONIC circuitry devices.
Ahhh yes, didn't think of that. Maybe he should make a little Farady cage to temporarily experiment with.
