WS-2811 without HW
« on: August 05, 2016, 12:49:11 PM »
Just picked up a used ws-2811 as my first station.
La Crosse does not have links to Heavy Weather on their site that I can find.

Is it possible to connect to a pc with another software program?  I tried a search but nothing popped up.

Thanks for any and all help

Are you referring to the links on the Specs tab?  If so try clicking one.

Thanks for the reply

Maybe try Weather Display.  Although I don't see that particular model in their list, it may still work.  I own WD. For $60, you can't beat it.

Spoke with tech support and they said the site is being updated and not all files have been migrated but should be done next week.

I'll check out WD in the mean time.

Thanks
