Just curious, did you look at this link? https://github.com/gjr80/weewx-gw1000

You could also post your question over @ https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/weewx-user

I am right there with you lol, but I think I at least made progress today using the new GW1000 API driver.   I just posted some pics which makes me think I am good, but I am waiting for someone to give me a thumbs up.

Is there a reason you are choosing to use the Interceptor driver instead of the new API driver?   I have tried to install both and had issues, but when I read that nobody was updating the Interceptor driver anymore and the new API driver was the way to go, that is what I focused on.

I know there are some cases where the API driver is not the best choice, but if that is not the case, I would focus on the API driver posted above.  After a few tries I think I got it installed correctly and I didn't even have a clue what a Raspberry Pi was 2 weeks ago lol.

I was one of the beta testers for this extension. I believe that all the bugs have now been found and I would recommend using it.
