Wouldn't surprise me.  8-)

Bloomsky Sky Camera+sensors / Bloomsky works better when its cold outside
« Last post by ocala on Today at 08:11:10 PM »
As the title states when it has been cold in my area the camera actually takes pictures just about all day. When the weather warms up it's back to maybe one or two day.
It's really just a paper weight at this point sitting outside but just thought this was an odd occurrence.

I have been reading about cold air meandering around the north pole.  Supposedly, it's been mainly in Siberia now.  But it could move around and be in the US by February 5th, moving as far south as the Gulf of Mexico by the end of the month.

WeatherUnderground / Re: WU - Let us know your issues

I'd like to have my webcam show with my station. I have 2 active webcams with WU.
Tried numerous time to associate them with my station page. That's all for me.

Try going to your profile, then My Webcams.  If they are active, click on edit.  It will bring up signup page all filled out, scroll down toward the bottom andput your WS ID in the box under "Associate with PWS" see below.

Don't know if it will work now, but worked for me.

IT WORKS!   \:D/

Thanks!

It isn't nearly as bad in this forum as it is out on the web. https://www.sitejabber.com/reviews/wunderground.com#reviews is just one example.   I truly hope that they can get it turned around, but the damage may have already been done. It is way easier to keep a customer then to win one back.   Their involvement here and the Trello board are encouraging and my best wishes to the team.   I just have to learn to be more patient.  Not one of my stronger points.   :-)

Wow.  Ya...those comments are brutal.  What do you expect though?...there is (still) no contacting support, you never know what was going on with the site or features, things disappear or quit working without warning, and when you were able to contact someone they blamed the user #-o.  The site is still salvageable, but it's going to take some planning. 

Losing confidence...not sure they can swing it.  Only they know.

Well spotted SnowHiker - yes it was the original Vantage Pro, although I have added other sensors onto it over the years (uv and solar radiation), along with SIM upgrade kit which seemed upgrade the system closer to the more recent VP2, well, that's what I've been led to believe anyway.

PANDY weather.
My original VP will be 15 in April.  I've gotten my money's worth and it's still going strong.  :-)

The only thing to keep in mind is that many parts are not interchangeable with the VP2, and some parts, such as the temp/hum sensor, are no longer available.

Fortunately, your reed switch for the rain gauge should be compatible.  No worries there.  Though it still confuses me that the rain showed up the next day.  One other thought, Archae86 mentioned the time on the console, I assume the time on the WeatherLink software and the computer agree?

Davis Instruments Weather Stations / Re: Repeated signal dropouts
« Last post by dalecoy on Today at 07:27:42 PM »
Three console boards (essentially 3 consoles) and yet the ISS troubles persist! That's certainly not helping to make the case that this issue is confined to a handful of consoles.

I didn't ever think that was the case.  However, a handful of reported cases from locations with relatively low temperatures where the operator noticed the problem, and perhaps most likely where multiple transmitters are involved.

The frequency-hopping technology being used by the VP2 requires the receiver (console) to adjust to the exact set of frequencies being transmitted, and those exact frequencies will "drift" with temperature changes at the transmitter.  With multiple transmitters, that's multiple sets of frequencies, and each set "drifts" differently.  Firmware algorithms to handle that situation are not simple - and the smaller available memory in the VP2 console undoubtedly required compromises. 

Apparently (based on evidence demonstrated in this thread), the firmware algorithms in the Vue console are better at handling the situation.
