Ok, go easy on me, I've decided to experiment with these little fellas and need pointing in the right direction
I have two on the way and my aim is to use one as early rain detection and one as TB for direct comparison against VP2 TB & CoCoRaHS Manual Rain Gauge.
So this is what I think I know,
1/ WD can use the RG11 as a TB and measure accumulative rain fall.
2/ WD can use the RG11 as "its raining".
I assume 2 WD's would need to be running or can one WD be used to monitor two RG11's?
From what I've read here WD uses a "1 wire counter" to connect the RG11 to a pc. Has someone got a link to one of these and do I need anything else to connect RG11 & 1 wire counter to pc.
Also, I read there are other ways of connecting the RG11. Either by A/D converter
or by serial / USB using this method at weather-above.com
Is there a preferred method?
I know there's a few questions in there but I want to start off in the right place.
I'm grateful for any comments and helpful information.
