Davis Instruments Weather Stations / Re: VP2 Daylight Time problem

Thanks

I tried this once before, working from the WeatherLink side;  and the time did not stay on Daylight, but switched back to Standard.

I have the boxes checked beside "Daylight Saving" Auto. Should both be checked? Maybe this is the problem?

See Attached below: This is what I have done just now. [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Such a simple thing to give me trouble. Thanks again

Despite the seriousness of it, there is reason to be able to let off some tension through humor.

If you have the Davis Weatherlink program it is very simple -
Set up - Set time & date
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

If you did not buy a copy of Weatherlink with your station, it is now a free download. There are several links to it listed here in the Davis section of this forum.

It is OLD software and gets a lot of bad press because of the dated look, but it is very FUNCTIONAL and has a lot of nice features and reports.

OK, I reduced the abs by 2.7. I looked the process up in the manual for Calibration (uses TEMP & MAX MIN buttons).

Thanks Ken! Awesome work as usual...:)

I've done a rewrite of usaextremes.php (including the function of stateextremes.php) as a new worldextremes.php (V5.00 - 04-Apr-2020).

The expanded script now uses the CSV files from https://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products/cadb/ which includes worldwide data.
A small caveat however, the data is NOT WELL PROOFED so you can get some max/min temperatures for a station showing >25C differences.
The script already filters out >40C differences (configurable).

Now the following variables are returned:
Quote
$omittedCountry (text list of countries excluded from $world high/low/precip scans)
Note: the setting $ignoreCountrys is the array of country names to to exclude
$worldhigh
$worldlow
$worldprecip

$selectedCountry (setting: country name for selected country high/low/precip)
Note: run http://your.site.com/worldextremes.php?list to see the list of country names to use
$countryhigh
$countrylow
$countryprecip

$usahigh (Note: for lower-48 USA states)
$usalow (Note: for lower-48 USA states)
$usaprecip (Note: for lower-48 USA states)

$selectedState (setting: USA state 2-character name abbreviation in settings area)
$selectState (a copy of $selectedState for compatibility with old stateextremes.php)
$statehigh
$statelow
$stateprecip

$reportDate (nicely formatted date of the report)
$stateReportDate (a copy of $reportDate for compatibility with old stateextremes.php)

To replace the usaextremes.php (and stateextremes.php) just use include_once("worldextremes.php") and comment out/remove the include for stateextremes.php.

See the docs at https://saratoga-weather.org/scripts-NWSmisc.php#NWSEXTR which has the download link for the script.

Many thanks to Jim (SoMDWx) for his assistance with this script!  =D>  \:D/

Best regards,
Ken

Weather Station Pictures / Newbie Question.
« Last post by AndyB on Today at 01:01:45 PM »
I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post this. If it's not could one of the moderators please move it.

Hi Guys 'n Gals,
A while ago my wife purchased an Oregon Scientific weather station that uses wireless (433Mhz) sensors. The base station works fine but there is no way to log the data.

I found a receiver circuit based on an Arduino that grabbed and decoded the data. That worked well and I was able to stuff the data in to a database. Problem was the USB kept dropping out and I'd lose days of data each time as I had to do a hard reset to get it back.

Does anyone here know, or have made a similar system using a raspberry Pi ?

I'm thinking of the Pi as it's network based and I could grab the data that way.

Any advice/help would be appreciated.

Cheers,

Andy

PS I'm a retired Electronics/ICT technician so am handy with a soldering iron and some coding ;)

There are three requirements:

- Set your time zone: Central
- Set the Daylight Saving: Auto
- Set the clock

Pages 14 -16 of user manual:
https://www.davisinstruments.com/product_documents/weather/manuals/07395-234_IM_06312.pdf

If I do this, will it necessitate having to enter all the data over again like I was just setting up my station? I sure wouldn't want to do that just for an hour time difference. Never had this problem before.
