With multiple transmitters, that's multiple sets of frequencies, and each set "drifts" differently

It may well be that the frequency drift with temperature is the main fly in the ointment here, but let's not forget that there's another parameter too, which is the limits of the timing window in which each wireless channel sits. Maybe any timing drift also correlates with frequency drift (as presumably it might do if there was some master clock).

Also, I don't know whether each transmitter synchronises to use the same sequence of frequencies in the FHSS pattern or not. It would be quite interesting to see an explanatory post from someone who actually knows and understands how the FHSS, channel timings etc all work together for multiple VP2/Vue transmitters.
Other Weather Topics / WU Alternative?

The team who created is going to build an improved WU alternative that works smoothly - if you want us to. But this requires resources. So we are asking weather enthusiasts - like you - out there, if they would be willing to pay a small price for such a satisfying service.

We are not weather enthusiasts ourselves. But we love webcams. And we have a genuine interest in providing a satisfying service for our users. Now, and in the future. Below you see two sample screenshots of how our new service might look like:

Please let us know in this survey, if you are interested in such an improved WU alternative. Thank you. (Google Survey)

Got this mail from WU today:


There's currently an issue with the PWS dashboard populating summary data. We're working to resolve the problem with a site update. Due to a backlog of current requests, it may take a week or two, but we will fix it.
Thank you,

Looking at your wxStatus and that shows that all the dates and times are old so appears FTP is not working, and perhaps some setting errors - i.e, very old Weather data and NOAA report.

I don't run Cumulus MX but think, just like Cumulus 1, it does create the realtime.txt in your computer \Cumulus folder so you can check if that is currect.

The following is from the Cumulus How To Ask For Help and Steve is still monitoring his forum and providing support.
If you are having a problem with getting data on to your web site, turn on the ftp logging (on the configuration menu) and look at the ftplog.txt and/or realtimeftplog.txt file (in the Cumulus installation folder). If the problem isn't obvious, attach the appropriate file to your post, and say what ftp settings you are using in Cumulus.

Good luck,

Hope it happens during the Super Bowl.

Davis Instruments Weather Stations / Re: Vantage Pro 2 rain gauge issue
« Last post by dalecoy on Yesterday at 10:36:00 PM »
then this morning consider my amazement when I discovered the 32mm was showing on my Vantage Pro consol. It had been recorded for the wrong day i.e. a day later (22 Jan), but the complete reading was there.

Just checking....
Are you certain this wasn't "storm total"?
Cumulus / All of a sudden issue with realtime.txt not updating webpage (I think)
« Last post by dilly on Yesterday at 09:16:57 PM »
Hi everyone,

I noticed today that it appears my webpage upload of realtime.txt data isnt updating.  Still seeing Dec 29 data on the webpage.

Using CumulusMX on a Rasp Pi3
website is

I can log into my ftp and upload files without issue so I am thinking it is something else maybe.  This same Cumulus setup has worked for a long time (up until 29DEC17 that is).

when I look at I am seeing the 29DEC data.  Any ideas? 
Do you think it is an uploading issue or is Cumulus not generating a new updated realtime.txt file?
Or something else I am missing.

I have a number of .json files when looking at the server side via ftp that appear to have not been updated since on this same 29DEC17 date (dailytemp.json, sunhours.json, dailyrai.json, etc.).

Open to any ideas or paths to troubleshoot you might have.  Accessing the Cumulus GUI appears to work just fine and is showing updated current conditions.

Thanks so much!
