HP2551 Any help much appreciated

Dear any one,
Am I able to use Cumulus MX with my HP2551 Ecowitt station? That is all I
have along with a WH57 lightning detector.

It hooks into Weather Underground etc using wifi.

I run a mac mini (2012) running Catalina 10:15:7.

How do I download it and configure it please? Hope its realatively easy and
cant wait to give it a go.

Many thanks

Tim

It is easy. You just need to buy an Ecowitt GW1000. Be sure to match the frequency when ordering to that of your HP2551.

Thank you galfert . So the install bit is that relatively straight forward?

To be honest we do not have many Mac users but it should be.

If I were you I would buy a raspberry Pi and install the Pi image https://cumuluswiki.org/a/Raspberry_Pi_Image. There are more users of the Raspberry Pi so you are more likely to get more help if you get stuck but the Pi image makes it very easy.
