Re: LOW BATTERY TRANSMITTER 1?

I was wondering along those lines, but as far as I know the reception is a passive activity ie it doesn't do anything special to receive in the way that, for example, a cell phone does (where power is raised if the incoming signal is weak), but is listening out all the time, so I didn't think that d...

Re: LOW BATTERY TRANSMITTER 1?

Thanks. Yes, that was exactly my conclusion, and I have emailed the supplier. Seems like maybe the supercap hasn't worked from day 1. The first battery may have lasted longer just because it was June and July (when we have only 2 or 3 hours of darkness at night), but now we are getting longer nights...

Re: LOW BATTERY TRANSMITTER 1?

I have a couple of problems with a Davis Vantage Vue weather station installed only a couple of months ago. It seems to be running down the transmitter backup battery in a matter of days. The first battery lasted 2 months, but then showed low battery when I replaced it (it was at 1.85V), the next on...

Re: Correcting spurious data on Fine Offset / Wether Undergr

Thanks Steve, appreciate your quick attention. I'll take a look at that and see if I can find a not too painful way to send in retrospective data 'manually', though it's bad enough having to delete the dud records one by one. It's a pity WU doesn't some kind of bulk import from CSV for historic data...

Correcting spurious data on Fine Offset / Wether Underground

Is is possible to retrospectively correct data sent to Weather Underground? My Fine Offset invented a load of ridiculously heavy rain today owing, I think, to wind gusts up to 80 mph shaking the rain sensor (the rain peaks correspond exactly to the wind peaks. Of course that has been uploaded to wun...

Re: Rain Gauge- inaccuracy

We had the opposite problem - recorded two ridiculous bursts of rain this afternoon totalling about 190mm! Studying the daily graph I think I have the answer. I think that wind gusts (up to 65 mph today) must have shaken the rain sensor so violently that it has recorded as if lots of water were pass...

Re: Uploading stored overnight data to Wunderground

The ideal way is to use one of the backups and get Cumulus to continue from that point (copy the files from the appropriate backup folder into the data folder); then everything will be consistent. Brilliant - thanks. That worked like a charm and recovered several days of missing data. And it was fu...

Re: Uploading stored overnight data to Wunderground

Like WD40, I think the benefits of being able to upload a missed day or two's records, or even just overnight, would far outweigh the mistiming of the final record by up to 10 mins. But in any event, since the chances are that when this upload is being done the station will now be live, as an option...
