ABC's of Establishing a WX Station
« on: December 13, 2014, 10:57:32 AM »
I have been searching around the forums for information on establishing a home wx station and have found info, but it is scattered throughout this amazing/in-depth forum.
Has there been any thought, unless I missed it, to posting an "ABC's of setting up a home wx station?  From hardware to software, preferred locations, pitfalls, lessons learned...Thought it would be a good one stop source to jump into.
If not, I'm sure I will find it as I continue to poke about this site.

Cheers,
DB
