Change to Davis WLL Webtag wording

Post by ConligWX »

I was just looking at the webtags page here:

https://cumuluswiki.org/a/Webtags#Davis_WLL under the Davis WLL heading.

the wording of the functions seems slightly misleading

<#DavisTxRssi tx=1> = WLL WiFi RSSI

but this is the RSSI of the Transmitter (on channel 1) and not "WiFi" signal strength of the WLL. (WiFi is on 2.4Ghz)

this should be changed to:

<#DavisTxRssi tx=1> RSSI of Transmitter #1

AFAIK there is no known webtag for the WLL WiFi RSSI unless you look at the health Data in Weatherlink.com

I've changed the Wiki, id=0 is the WiFi RSSI, and 1-8 are the transmitters.

No, I didn't add one for that. It gets logged in the log file every 15 minutes though - if debug logging is enabled :)
I suppose I could add a tag for it in the next release.

Thank would be great yes. I noticed many of the packet tags for Davis WLL tend to be 0 values. is this just becuase there are no resends and no resyncs are needed? Only had the WLL less than 24hrs but seems to do its job very well.

They do get non-zero values - here is mine now...

I have found that the transmitter reception is best with the "flat" side of the WLL facing the transmitter.

yes Just tried this now and reception improved from -67dB to -54-dB.

I also notice you have added WLL Supply voltage too in the 3.7.1 beta. Nice.
