I don't care if it's 9.98, I don't do WM.

Period.


Plus, the station needs the anny separate to be placed properly.

Banners, tags, widgets, etc. are why I have Signatures turned off.

That is a heck of deal.  But not available in Canada.  :(  Interestingly, Wallyworld sells some Davis stuff (at ridiculous markup of course compared to US prices)

Think it is a perfect price and solution for anyone wanting to get into the hobby for $98, if the interest grows then then you can move up ladder with more expensive accurate equipment.

Every week I get emails from locals here in Istanbul wanting to buy hardware but there is nothing available it has to be purchased overseas and we get add one of local tax on top of import tax , I think your very very fortunate to be able to buy at prices like this..

Amen!!!  =D>

For anyone not following the Acu-Rite section here, the company has a "vaporware" new pro-sumer station in development that was supposed to be out by late summer.  This may be an effort to clean out excess 5-in-1 stock, especially looking at the console in their bundle that appears to be 2010-2012 vintage.....
WU Gold Stars for everyone! :lol:

after 10 years of living here in istanbul you learn to swallow it , nothing can be done about it no point in shouting or screaming at someone on the phone or the other side of counter...
in general we can purchase most popular electronic brands , cars etc and not pay tax etc but as soon as you go for the overseas buying route you get stumped and it don't get delivered or cleared at customs until you cough up ..

unfortunately weather station hardware is almost or is none existent here to purchase as there is very little demand so most of us have to swallow the imports overheads.

I'm not sure if Acurite is going to nix the 5 in 1 line at this point. The new stations they have coming out are more expensive and targeted to a slightly different market. I feel the 5 in 1 units fill a good need for those just getting into the hobby.
