    Re: Standing at the precipice...

    Hi,

    Your profile (still) shows your Operating System as Windows XP. AFAIK Cumulus MX (still) can't run under XP?

    Cheers, Alan.

    Re: No reception when it rains - OK when it's sunny

    Hi, Energizer Lithiums deliver almost 2 volts (each) at light load, so the voltage shouldn't be an issue (unless it's too high! ). Do you have any "obstructions" between the transmitter and receiver(s)? Damp brick for example may reduce the signal quite considerably, particularly if 868 MHz rather t...

    Re: Does anyone use wind measurement correction?

    Hi, Wind speed similarly lower on Davis [17.1 km/h] than on Fine Offset [21.2 km/h] - ratio is 1.24 So, having considered all this, should I add a correction factor of +20% to the Davis wind speeds? Thanks for those interesting observations which appear to confirm that the OP shoould NOT introduce a...

    Re: Does anyone use wind measurement correction?

    Hi, The "official" measurement of wind speed should be 10 metres above an "open field" with no obstructions, which is practically impossible for most amateur stations (and should be taken into account by most users of the data). If you are "posting" data which you hope to be useful, then generally t...

    Re: Change Log Interval

    Hi,

    It's a Windows Application called SetLogger.exe , which can be found as a .zip file in the Downloads or Wiki sections of this forum, or directly here.

    Re: Photos of the insides of Fine Offset sensors.

    Hi, Thanks for the detailed information and welcome to the forum. My apologies for the delay in replying, but I had hoped that somebody might "know" the answer, I can only "guess". Unfortunately, I have never had a Hall Vane sensor to test. I had assumed that the Hall Wind Vane was "compatible" with...

    Re: Transmitter repair.

    Hi, Sorry, rather late with this reply. I would make an assumption that I probably could run 2 (or more) identical transmitters (that is to say the same frequency, protocols etc) to be picked up by a single transmitter. No, whilst FO indeed use only a "one way" transmission system ("send and hope"),...

    Re: WH2080 (WS-0101) receiver does not send data to computer

    Hi, Probably Not. It depends on the exact "Brand" or "Badge" of the Weather Station, but in my experience (Clas Ohlson 1080, 868 MHz) the Wireless Protocol was changed from the Original (FSK) to the "new" (OOK) coding system around 2014. So a (868 MHz) model bought in 2012 is likely to be FSK whilst...

    Re: Wind bearing zero when calm

    Hi, Would agree that it must be the station reporting the zero bearing. No I don't think so. The FO transmitter sends only 4 bits corresponding to the 16 "possible" wind directions (N , NNE, NE, etc..). It definitely cannot distinguish between 0 and 360 degrees. There is another flag for "direction ...

    Re: Photos of the insides of Fine Offset sensors.

    Hi Chris, Only the anemometer/vane (and Solar Sensors when applicable) need to be "on the roof", the "recommended" height for T/H and Rain sensors is only a few feet above the ground. The FO sensors are all cabled, which can be easily extended if required (provided that the RJ11/12 connectors are ad...

    Re: Photos of the insides of Fine Offset sensors.

    Hi, Welcome to the forum. To answer a few of your questions: The "Solar Pod" (for solar data) contains quite a lot of electronics including a "voltage regulator" which feeds current to the batteries in the main transmitter unit. It takes the form of an ultra low quiescent current (a few uA) 3.3 volt...

    Re: Yearly Rainfall resetting to zero

    Hi, As the 8681 Pro is not a compatible /supported station with the Cumulus software, we may not be able to help much. Where are you seeing this behaviour, on the Console or in a Web interface? Generally, the first port of call for such a problem is to back up all the data as best you can, and then ...

    Hi, At the moment it says sunshine >12 Extreme. ...... after uninstalling Cumulus first. The ">12 / Extreme" is the UV Index and should never reach 12 in UK, so that is obviously wrong. If you Reset the Pod and the Console and the Console screen refills with values like those, ideally at the same ti...

    Hi, What does the Console display show? If that's wrong, then there's no point in looking to Cumulus (any version) to solve the problem. If the Console display is inoperative then you could try installing and running the "official" software "Easyweather Plus" (Just the Once :) ). But it can't run at...
