assuming you are talking about the WH65 array, no counterweight needed.

Hi!

For memory sizes > 32GB, the Windows-internal formatting programme will not format FAT32. It is therefore necessary to use third-party software.

Ah yes, I'd forgotten that. Cmd line then: > format /FS:FAT32 /Q X:
Which I believe does format > 32 GB?
the Windows format tool simply doesn't create FAT32 partitions > 32 GB.
The arbitrary limit was introduced by MS to make people move to exFAT or NTFS as a safer file system.
When you create a partition > 32 GB with e.g. diskpart, the format tool only offers exFAT or NTFS as formatting options.
meaning your above command won't work.
depending on sector size and the proper formatting tool, you can create FAT32 partitions between 2 TB (sector size = 512 bytes) and 16 TB (sector size = 4096 bytes). 2^32 x 512 bytes = 2 TB.

Is the Ambient wind vane supposed to be balanced, or did I miss a counterweight on assembly?

I am wondering about two things
a) why would I need a SD card > 32 GB - mine is 32 GB, has about 20 backups (16 MB each - bigger backups do not exist), and for 5+ years now about 30+ observations every 5 minutes - and the card is far from being full

b) as far as I know the card reader in the HP2550 console only supports the SDHC SD card type - which by design is limited to 32 GB. Problems have always occurred with the SDXC type of SD cards. They often came with sizes 64, 128, 256 GB, pre-formatted in FAT32 - and still failed to be read. The 32 GB limit was never a limit of disk size but of hardware type SDHC.

If Ecowitt meanwhile have built in disk readers which can manage SDXC cards, then this works of course. Maybe the newer hadware editions have not only a new WiFi modem and a new RF antenna but also a new card reader ....

Rufus is one of many tools to create bootable disks, USB sticks etc. and as a side-effect can also format them to FAT32 partitions > 32 GB by increasing the cluster size. Like this up to 2 TB can be formatted to FAT32 as long as the file size remains <= 4 GB. Once a file grows bigger, the FAT32 can no longer create it (respectively completely store it) even if the disk size is larger.

Barani has the advantage of being unmanned and most of the time there are similar/analogous maxima and minima to the WMO Screnn. However, in autumn and winter, disturbing overestimations of measured air temperature can occur most days of the year, forecasting daily/weekly and monthly averages and maxima. Certainly, there will be more such days in Poland than in Belgium.

If you want to check other actual coverages, Met One and Apogee are worth trying.

Response time at night in low wind conditions also in favor of the Davis FARS24H and Apogee TS100 over the Barani Meteoshield Pro III.

Severe Weather / Types of lightning
« Last post by Studio Dewolf on Today at 01:49:27 PM »
The overview of lightning types has been renewed and expanded. Several new types have been added. There are now 25 different types of lightning in total, including volcanic lightning, dry lightning, and bead lightning.
