Re: Australian weather radar gadget.

Matt, I dont know how difficult it would be, but I think it might be nice to be able to click on the gadget and open the web page.

Re: Australian weather radar gadget.

Hey Matt, nice work. Now if you could make one that works with weatherzone, you could have 12 hours of radar....

Re: Bugreport

For so many years that was my bible, along with "Programming the Z80". Thanks for the reminder.

Re: Mine’s Bigger than Yours

I know its not in my cumulus logs because its the other end of Australia, but I heard today that Darwin has had 425mm of rain in the last 24 hours.

Re: Homebuilt Wind Vane 1deg resolution

I doubt that many of us have an unobstructed area around our instrumentation to get any kind of stable airflow. I know mine is extremely compromised by the terrain and the foliage in our area. Thats a compromise that we make to live the way we want. Thanks for bringing some sanity back to the discus...

Re: Homebuilt Wind Vane 1deg resolution

No, I was right in the first place, the slots in the anemometer disk generate wind speed pulses primarily, but the electronics also counted the number of anemometer pulses between an index pulse from the anemometer disk and the point where that index hole passes a reference hole in the windvane disk...

Re: WS2350 - OK if com port ?

I have a WS-2315 that was connected to a serial port on a laptop until the laptop died. Its now connected via a Belkin usb to serial adapter on a new PC that has no serial port. I've had no issues apart from the known spurious readings that lacrosse stations are known to discover.

Re: Homebuilt Wind Vane 1deg resolution

I remember looking at a design over 20 years ago that had the anemometer and wind vane built into one unit. There was a reason for that. the anemometer was mounted on the top and the windvane on the bottom. The anemometer used an optical encoder with 360 slots. There was also a second track that had...

Re: Homebuilt Wind Vane 1deg resolution

Just a thought. The windvane on the lacrosse units have a disk with 4 slots for the gray code. The interesting thing that keeps the component count and the current consumption down is that they use a led for each slot, but only a single phototransistor. there is a light pipe with 4 little nubs on it...

light being reported as evapotranspiration on web page

I've just recently got a WH3081 to replace an aging ws-2315. as you know the 3081 does solar radiation and uv. Its been brought to my attention that the light value in lux as shown on the cumulus console and the LCD of the weatherstation is being reported on the web page as evapotranspiration. It se...

Re: Always low pressure new record light flashes (958)

Steve, I'm still seeing the same error in 1.9.1 build 977. You just gave me the clue that I had to click the high pressure to clear it.
