This is NovaLynx's version of the SRG. I think that NovaLynx is better looking.

ValentineWeather has one.

I saw one of the official versions at the local COOP observer, and some at the KAPX Open House. It is big.
I keep thinking about adding one to my Excessive Collection of Weather Stuff....

Greg if you ever get the Novalynx you will need to replace their dipstick with a NOAA/NWS version dipstick.
I complained several times and got new dipsticks put they were really bad and hard to see the water mark.
Finally ordered dipsticks through http://www.highsierraelectronics.com/products/sensors/precipitation and got what I needed.

Thanks for the lead. I have a NovaLynx stick for my copper Standard Gauge, and the printing has all come off of it.

I just ordered one from High Sierra.

You will be happy they work great, easy to read with a clear watermark. I ordered 3 total so should be good for years.

Weird how in cultures one thinks about what spouses think about hobbies etc. Nice to have a spouse who doesn't complain about what I do. Guess it in the gents make up of native versus white.

My wife is pretty tolerant.  I have 10 garden tractors in various states of disrepair, so what ever I want to mount for weather monitoring kind of pales in comparison. :lol:
