Thanks Mattk,

My new data logger is a USB, my old data logger is a serial port.

I will do a full backup copy of my Weatherlink file before I proceed with the system upgrade. Thanks also for the heads up as regards 300 file limit, I didn't realise this.

What about switching over the ISS from the old to new station, is there any particular procedure I should follow there?

WeatherLink version (6.0.0) will be fine, no need to upgrade this but there are newer versions available

Being WLPC 6.0.0 the file extension should be .wlk

WeatherLinkPC data files will be in the station folder/name and if a default install will be a folder under Weatherlink in the root directory. In the Weatherlink folder will also be the exe and associated system files.

The old data logger won't work in your new VP2 console only because of Davis limitations, more info on this search "green dot logger". What is your old (Davis I assume?) logger USB or Serial, what is your new logger USB or serial?

To bring the new VP2 on line you won't really have to do much at all, confirm the logger connection and Walkthrough the new console setup.

You should also do a full back/copy of the WeatherLink/Station folder etc before changing anything. Also keep in mind WeatherLinkPC has a 300 file limit, 300 months, 25 years or more precisely 24 years and 11 months. After 22 years you have a few more years grace but will eventually need to reorganize things at 25 years.

I can because the rain had cleared my area at about 3 pm on the 12th.

Looking ahead, the mayor in my town is already looking forward to the next solar eclipse affecting the local area.  On FB he posted, "Mark your calendars now, Stillwater! On August 12, 2045, we'll be almost on the centerline of totality for the next major American solar eclipse."

I don't if I'll live that long to see it.  But I wonder more from all the turmoil in the world, will the world still be around as we know it now?


In the year 2045, if I'm still alive, I'll be in the totality, if these old eyes can still see.
Ok, that was a bad attempt at the song In the year 2525.

Yes I am FL-MR-18. It didn't actually show up on the map because I submitted it at 2AM on my way to work. They have some type of rule where if you submit it too early it won't show on the map. So I edited the time to 7AM.

Then we have apples and oranges? You measured at 2 am and most other folks measured at 7 am? If so, you can’t be sure you had the record for the day—observation time yes, however.  Maybe your station measurement needs an asterisk?

Thanks Mattk -

My current Weatherlink version is 6.0.0
I also have the Agricultural Management Module v.1.1 installed

Where would I find my current Weatherlink data file extension please?

The data logger came with the Vantage pro and Weatherlink I purchased back in 2002.

Hope that helps

I see the GW2000 has ethernet which I prefer to wifi

I think the original question of the OP was whether the combination HP2553 console + WS80 outdoor array + WH40 rain gauge (=HP2553 station) and a GW2000 is good to see the (real time ?) data via app and access data to process them externally.

Yes, a HP2553 station plus a GW2000 gateway/console or a GW1200 gateway/console would fulfill your needs - especially if you want to see real-time data via WS View Plus and not only the one-minute updates of the ecowitt.net dashboard or the Ecowitt app.

also read the text of the respective sensors: WS80, WH40, accessories (e.g. heater/external power supply - Nova Scotia might have rough winters)
does the GW2000 have everything the GW1200 has?  Amazon.ca doesn't seem to carry the GW1200 and that's where I'm buying all this stuff.

I have the WS80 (HP2553) now for serval months. Thus far it has been a good unit. I was skeptical at first and now, it's my main squeeze per say.
I also have the HP2552 and still using it. This was my favorite for years and it's still going strong.

I have nothing to compare on either unit as far as wind. But I will say, the WS80 refresh rate is awesome.
If you go with the ws80 and live in cold climate, get the heater.

Let us know what you decided to go with.

Will read now. 

I suppose I could only run the heater during the winter and store it for the warmer months.
