Update time wrong

Post by Jmilesy » Sat 16 Mar 2019 7:44 am

Hi All,

for some reason, the last station update is about 4 hours behind local time.

the data is current data and is updating, it's just the time is strange.

have I missed a simple setting?

It looks as if your weather station time is set incorrectly, as both your local time and Cumulus time look to be okay. I don't know anything about the WH1080PC, so can't offer advice on how to correct the time on the weather station.

Hi, thank you for that.

the time is set correctly on the weather stations, and the time is exactly 4 hours out which is what I find strange.

Hi,

Yes, that is all set correctly.

I assume that is where it gets the local time from?

The weather stations manual (P.11 & 12 ) http://www.foshk.com/upload/manual/WH10 ... manual.pdf say the TZ should be -1 for GMT. (-4 is US Atlantic TZ)
