Re: Rain cone holding water

I don't imagine the RainX would do much harm, though it's not an official recommendation. TBH if the new cone etc really is pretty new then I'd be inclined to leave it. Whatever the surface finish of the cone is, it seems to encourage beading more when it's brand new. But after weathering in for a w...

Re: WeatherLink Live

To my mind, the biggest minus with WLL is the requirement for an ongoing (paid) subscription to download your own historical data. I like to own my own data thank you very much! Yes, I understand. I'd suggest that you're not actually paying for your own historical data, you're paying for the servic...

Re: WeatherLink Live

Mark's nailed it pretty well and I'd echo the idea that Weatherlink Live (WLL) is best thought of as something a little different from a traditional Davis logger - WLL does offer many extra features but does not use the same API as older loggers and so is not compatible with the established software...

Re: How to chage a static IP in Weatherlink?

I haven't got one, but I thought you just pointed your browser at the loggers IP address, and got something like this back? That's fine if the static IP address is still valid for the local network. The problem comes with eg a change of router that might want to use a different local subnet from th...

Or there are free online servers, https://www.cloudmqtt.com/ is one. Sadly the cloudmqtt free option is 'Out of stock' :? at present for new subscribers (luckily I have a free one set up months ago that is still fine). Hopefully they might reactivate the free option at some stage. All the paid-for ...

Re: Davis anemometer transmitter problems

Do these fake large gusts point to supercap failure as well? No, it's not a common or specific symptom of supercap or board failure, but simply falls into the more general (and unhelpful) category of odd readings. It's impossible to say for sure but this one does sound to me a little more like a fa...

Re: Davis anemometer transmitter problems

Not sure if you get low battery warnings from the standalone transmitter - I have never seen one on my console. I have seen low battery warnings from the ISS in the past ... I think! Yes, you should do - the console ticker should say 'Low battery on station 2' or something like that I don't underst...

Re: Davis anemometer transmitter problems

Hmm, that looks OK, but unfortunately it's not a definitive test - if you can see gunge on one of the leads then the supercap is likely to be shot, but it does also sometimes fail without visible signs. You haven't explicitly said, but I presume that you're losing data from the ISS (ie rather than j...

Further to this - I re-seated the battery in the unit and was rewarded with about two hours worth of data recording. Loose connection?
Possible, but v unlikely. Whats does a visual check of the supercap indicate - clean leads or some exudate?

Re: Davis anemometer transmitter problems

The anemometer Tx board is identical to the main ISS board and so any issues and features in the ISS also read across to the 6332 Anemo Tx board. More generally, Davis only make two types of transmitter board for the VP2 stations. One is the ISS type (all wireless VP2 ISS versions; 6332; 6372; 6382)...

This is a great idea, albeit one that I don't have the expertise to contribute to myself. But could I make a plea not to overlook the simple, obvious stuff in any webpage/documentation/video.

Re: Pro Vue Gain

AFAIK Gain has long since been disabled (because it can't really improve signal/noise). It's a hangover from the old VP1/VP2 days when there was a question over whether it might possibly be useful. Is this a Vue or a VP2? The subject line is confusing! How old? TBH it sounds like a relatively elderl...
