Apple ][+ in 1982. That was back when you weren't supposed to be able to buy one mail order somehow, so to get a good deal, I drove to LA and back (400 miles or so round trip) in one day to get a better deal. First program was a database called Data Reporter, which we used to track our wedding expenses.

I still have it in the Brain Room. It was running a home automation program I wrote which would answer an extension on our in-home phone system, and use DTMF to send X10 commands to control lights and such via a Novation Applecat modem. It responded with synthesized voice from a Lis'ner 1000 board I built. That board also did a crude form of voice recognition, but required extensive training for just one person, and I never got it to work well enough to replace the DTMF.

I agree with dupreezd, most of us do not have the perfect placement for a weather station.

I switch to a WS-2902a about a year ago from a Acurite 5-1.  I have been quite please with the performance and reliability of this unit.  It was easy to put together and set up.  I also bought a WS-2000 recently for another location based on how well the WS-2902a worked.

Hi guys,

I will get my MeteoHelix Iot Pro in a week.
Based on what I talked to the owner of the company, Mr. Barani, the MeteoHelix is currently in fine-tuning stage and should be released officially to market directly after the Meteorology Technology Expo in Amsterdam in October.

From what is/will be available, SigFox and Lora network are supported, as well as in future NB-Iot should be also available.
I have a Sigfox coverage in my area, so I will do tests in my garden. I see a good plus in using the Lora version instead, for example if the user (farmer for ex.) has several devices, he can buy quite cheap Lora gateway and have his own network.

So let me see when it comes, I will post some info later.

Oh Dear!! I thought the problem was all sorted but came home today and find that Weather Underground is saying my 'PWS stopped reporting' last night. BUT Weathercloud is still showing updates from the same weather station.
Either my weather station is incompatible with Weather Underground, or Weather Underground has a software defect. Either way    I am giving up on Weather Underground. I'll stick with Weathercloud and see how reliable that is.
Also Galfert - I discovered Weathercloud allows me to export my PWS data so if that works it means I can keep my rain history on my PC.
Thanks everyone for you help and advice.

Has anyone else had spikes in temps and dew point in such a short amount of time like that?
You definitely had some kind of boundary go through there based on the temp drop and consistent rise in dewpoint.
See the loop at 20Z.

 CW2274 you live out in the desert have you ever seen your humidity spike that much in such a short time with the monsoon or the influx of Pacific moisture?
Honestly, I'm not sure, but if so, I'd be infrequent. It's certainly possible your sensor is acting up, obviously study it closely, you'll be the best judge as whether it's going out the door or not. I posted the radar loop because you could see a 'boundary' or 'outflow' at the time of your spike move from south to north, but the Gulfport airport did not show the spike, but that's only one observation per hour compared to yours every 5 minutes.

I have had a some type of Davis weather station for over 20 years and I've never seen the sea breeze make the humidity jump that high in such a short amount of time. I wonder if it would have shown such a spike in that short of time if I had the 31 installed instead of the 75?

The Z-80 processor in the Trash-80 could not address more than 64K of RAM without using external bank switching, which of course was not standardized and purely a kludge.....

Yep, the original TRS-80 Model I and Model III had that limit; however, the Model IV implemented the bank switching. Many TRS-80 "clones" didn't have such limits.
