Humm, all appeared to be working fine, but not this morning.

The temps are not being sent correctly. We are currently at -10. The CWOP data screen shows the correct values, but it is sending 0 as the temp. Looking at my overnight data, it appears that 2.0.0.7 starts sending nd contunues to send 0 as soon as the temps hit the - values.

My site is CW1773

Dr. Tim,

Really appreciate the update, it is working fine for me so far.  I'll monitor and post as needed.

Bob, there is a later version that should fix the negative temperatures. We spotted that one yesterday!

Do I now set the altitude in console and in VWS Software
Yes
Do I correct it in console or in the VWS Software
Console

Do increase or decrease to correct it? http://weather.gladstonefamily.net/site/C4784?tile=10;days=1.5#Data
Increase your console's pressure by the looks of it

Will it fix it on its own?
No

Installed it and nope, not fixed. - temps still show 0. The only difference now is, it shows 0 in both the CWOP data screen and what it sends to CWOP. Before, it did show the correct temp on the data screen.

Dropped back to 1.9.8 and the temps are correctly sent.

Okay Bob, can you give 2.0.0.9 a go. It seems fine with simulated data.

Hello everyone,I would like to share my experience with VWSaprs.
I own a desktop that runs on windows 7 64 bit.
I use wlink/dlogger 5.8.2
        VWS 14.01p33
         WUHU 1,0,216,173
I am using VWSaprs2.0.0.0 download
VWS and VWSaprs are both set to  deg f,mph,inhg,altft,rainin
                                                datbaseupdate timer and VWSaprs send rate are both set to 10min.
when i downloaded the program i replaced 1.98 with 2.0.0.0
I have not had one glitch yet.
My one issue was when restoring the program from the task bar and going to the stat or vws info page it came up blank.I quickly reloaded the program and figured those parameters are set and to leave those two pages alone.The report page comes up everytime on restore.I had a minimum temp of -0.5 this morning which registered as 0 which is ok.My fear is should i update to the latest version or leave well enough alone.I like having software up to date.
Also as a side note i believe wxreport.txt file was also uploading windspeed and gust in knots.I like the fact it uses the database.
                                                         Thank you

This will go away with 2.0.0.9
You also do not say what Weather Startion Hardware you have nor do you have your Profile Info filled in.
I would like to see your stats for your station. Who do you upload to, do you have a web site?

Sorry about that Doh...
My weather equipment is Davis WeatherMonitorII complete with a USB connection from the datalogger to the computer.
I upload to CWOP(DW2489),Weatherunderground(KNYSARAT7),AWEKAS,WEATHERBUG and PWSweather.com.I don't have a website as of the present.I use VWS for CWOP and WeatherUnderground.I use a csv file generated by VWS for AWEKAS,Weatherbug and PWSweather.com.I have to explore the profile area and update it eventually.
                                                                               Thank you

Yes, 2.0.0.9 takes care of the - temp issues. Has been working well here all evening. Will keep an eye on it as the temps fall. Expecting well below -20 tonight.

Sure glad it is now working correctly. Thanks Tim!

We no longer send the date and time as its tagged on automatically when the aprs servers receive it. They completely ignore the time we send thm so there is no point sending it!

After upgrading from 2.0.0.6 to 2.0.0.9 it seems I am no longer sending data to APRS.  Is there a way to make it try to send immediately?  Or a log so I can see what the issue is?

Thanks,

Try unticking the minimise box, another user had this as a solution.

I didn't have the minimize box ticked.  Any other ideas?

Running on WinXP Pro by the way.

So, now you figured out your weather station's clock was wrong, is VWSaprs working for you?
