Here is the page where doing that was discussed.  However, it may be hard to understand how to get the ideas to work.
Ambient Weather Station / Upgrade radiation shield for WS-2902
« Last post by Y42351 on Yesterday at 10:52:49 PM »
Noticing that my Osprey afternoon temps are spiking a few degrees in the afternoon; any ideas on how to put a radiation shield on it? the SRS100LX is incompatible, it seems.
Weather in TV & Movies / Re: The Weather Channel sold again!
« Last post by DaleReid on Yesterday at 10:16:00 PM »
In reply to Ocala, another factor may be the arrival of HDTV, with the ability to run a couple of lower resolution channels off the same frequency assignment.

When it was analogue, you had one channel and that was it, and very expensive (not that the new equipment is cheap) to have that one channel on the air.

Now the big players have loaded two to six separate programs onto the same transmitter, and having the radar loop along with the last program presentation by their "chief" meteorologist is easy and a local crowd pleaser.  So why would someone looking for the local forecast or the recent radar during violent weather on a nationally beamed channel which at best shows you a limited amount of info that rotates into view once every 5 - 15 minutes.  And if there are hot spots, forget about that coming up.

Also, if they were running a 1/2 hour or hour program, forget about seeing some local stuff.

Weather Website PHP/AJAX scripting / Re: What PHP Version Is Required
« Last post by rrrick8 on Yesterday at 10:02:11 PM »
Meanwhile, I get this error.   Is it fixable?  It doesn't seem to affect operation of the script:

America/Chicago] PHP Warning:  strpos(): Offset not contained in string in /home/....../public_html/advforecast2.php on line 681

Been getting that one for a long time myself.
Line code is ...
Code: [Select]
$start = strpos($html, '<td colspan="2" valign="top" align="left">',$startgrab+1); // need second one
Davis Instruments Weather Stations / Re: VP2 Siting Advice Needed
« Last post by dport on Yesterday at 09:58:33 PM »
  I'd also like to note that I have not yet told my wife about the new Davis (she is already annoyed at the Ambient in the backyard).  I just got married 5 months ago...hoping I stay married after this.

Have you considered humbly asking her for her advice, about where and how to mount the parts of the VP2?  And, of course, give her all of the tradeoffs, etc. etc.  And tell her you're doing this because she's annoyed about the Ambient.

[After the first place she tells you to stick it, that could be a helpful conversation]

Yes, great thought, I think we are going to talk things over once the unit arrives here on Thursday.  I've told her the dimensions, but I still do not think she is aware of how big this is actually going to look in the yard.  Will keep an open mind to things once it arrives.

Same here re no WU notification over the past few months.  I have 4 other services that DO send notification if no recent data sent.

Davis Instruments Weather Stations / WL error?
« Last post by Old Tele man on Yesterday at 08:54:13 PM »
Anybody else getting this error on the Davis WL website?

Wondering if anyone has done this before and willing to share their knowledge:

I want to change my website header based on the current weather conditions. (I'm running Ken's template using Weather Display.)

I don't want to get too crazy - thinking different images for sunny, cloudy, rainy, night, etc.

I know it's possible with a PHP script but honestly, I don't know enough to really dig in and do it. Has anyone done anything similar?

Cumulus / Re: Fine Offset station not found!
« Last post by VE7FQN on Yesterday at 08:30:47 PM »
I have the station set for vantage pro/vue. I reinstalled virtual com port and re-did the Cumulus config. No more errors occuring. I then re-entered my user id/pw for the PWS. Now starting to see current data.

After I made the changes I turned on the debug and havn't seen any errors for the last while.

If this is accurate, I think I am good.
