possibly TX battery voltage?
Ah what I though may be battery voltage looks like it may be a checksum which is a bit of a stumbling block until I can work out what checksum method they've used.

Re: The inside of the ws-1081

Good luck working out the RF protocol, nobody else seems to have succeeded yet. Well I'm making progress, I've isolated the bits of the data stream that indicate :- Wind speed Direction Rainfall Temperature Humidity Low battery possibly TX battery voltage? But I haven't been able to work out how th...

Re: The inside of the ws-1081

You've omitted "Fit a larger battery to the transmitter" (or maybe add solar powering). The reason that the transmitter runs for a year or more on a pair of cells is that it only transmits for 50ms every 48 seconds (i.e. 0.1% duty cycle). Not a concern for me it will only ever need to run for a wee...

Would there be any way of making Cumulus look a...

Re: The inside of the ws-1081

Thanks, a bit more detail about my plan. :- Fit a better quality TX/RX unit with decent aerials to extend the range. Work out the protocol for the wireless link between the units (has someone done this already?) Work out the protocol for the USB link (ditto?). Fit my own little micro to the transmit...

Re: The inside of the ws-1081

Hi, does anyone know the exact part number for the Holtek USB IC, it looks like its HT82M something but it's not clear from the photo. I have a cunning plan to get a better update rate on the wind speed and direction sensors (I'm not too bothered on update rate for the other sensors) but need to kno...
