Re: Davis anemometer transmitter problems

]I don't understand why I got that 2-hour burst of data when I re-seated the battery yesterday, though. The sun wasn't out for that 2hr period was it? No, it was an overcast day. But otherwise I agree it's a bit odd. However, if you've tried all the obvious things like cleaning the battery contacts...

I've changed nothing for years, and it's a little crazy logic without an explanation !
Maybe the old forum server used to use DST? The current server doesn't.

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 ...

Whats does a visual check of the supercap indicate - clean leads or some exudate?
It looks very clean to my unpracticed eye.

Re: Davis anemometer transmitter problems

Further to this - I re-seated the battery in the unit and was rewarded with about two hours worth of data recording. Loose connection?

Re: Forum time

It is a Forum setting. Click on your User name on the top right and select User Control Panel and set it in Board Preferences. phpBB took the deliberate decision not to do this as they could never get the code right for the whole world, with different dates, so do, some don't etc. etc. Ah okay, fai...

Forum time has not shifted to BST - remains at GMT / UTC
Servers don't do daylight saving time shifts. That's something your web client/browser does for you. Posts are showing with correct times on all clients I have used since Sunday morning. Perhaps a setting on your client?

Davis anemometer transmitter problems

I have a separate Davis anemometer transmitter for my VP2 anemometer. Over the weekend I have had to replace its battery twice. The first time was because it was the first replacement I have made in eight years, so assumed the battery had finally given up the ghost. The second time was because I was...

Re: Adjusting barometric pressure

All (26) decisions are now being made in a compressed range A quick Google gave me a page on the Weather Underground site that shows historic pressure measurement ranges for various locations. It suggests (for Los Angeles) a maximum of 30.59 and a minimum of 29.07 - which I would probably round to ...

Re: Adjusting barometric pressure

I notice now that my Website forecast ( https://climate.tommueller.com/gauges-ss-crows.htm ) is constantly saying 'rain' or 'heavy rain' is coming when nothing of the sort is true. I notice my Davis monitor device (not the PC but actual standalone device in the house) reads a barometric pressure of...

Re: Questions about Date various derivatives applied to

In other posts Freddie contributed: Snow day runs from midnight to midnight (UTC) It's the same for days of hail and gale too. Fog is similar to snow depth, in that it is the existence of fog (visibility less than 1000m) at 0900 GMT that makes a "fog day". Snow depth and fog day are measured at an ...

Re: Weather Diary

Snow day runs from midnight to midnight (UTC) That makes life complicated for implementing the weather diary, two different days 9am GMT (UTC) to 9 for most weather records, plus snow depth; midnight to midnight for snow falling It's the same for days of hail and gale too. Fog is similar to snow de...

Re: Weather Diary

Those who follow professional meteorologists by using 9am/10am for normal weather recording would follow them by using 9am for snow (they would apply that year round hoping no snow in summer time so does not matter it does not swap to 10am) The definitions used by professional meteorologists (at le...

If no changes; has maybe a server or service been restarted or changes in some way.
Yes, I implemented a small change on Tuesday - one I have been meaning to make for quite a while but hadn't had the time to test properly. The details are in a post made on Tuesday.
