Oregon WMR89

Post by sdalrymple »

After nearly 2 years, my Fine Offset 1080 has given up the ghost (both wind and rain gauges are no longer working). Would anyone recommend the Oregon WMR89 as a replacement? It's currently on offer at Clas Ohlson

I don’t know much about the WMR89, but one thing I do know is that it doesn’t work with Cumulus, if that matters to you.

Hi,

The wind and rain sensors are available from Maplin at quite reasonable prices and are all compatible. However their (434MHz) transmitter is out-of-stock and wouldn't support the (inessential) Radio Clock of the 1080.

Clas Ohlson also have the latest (blue backlight) version of the 1080 at £10 less than the WMR89, and should at least be covered by their 2 year warranty. Maybe they will also put that on Offer again sometime. Note that the Clas Ohlson uses 868 MHz so the transmissions wouldn't be compatible with a 434 MHz version (if that's what your current 1080 uses).

Cheers, Alan.

Hi,

Unfortunately, the product is discontinued. Perhaps, I'll need to look somewhere else, as I was thinking about WMR89 as well. However, some space parts are still available (rain gauge and wind sensor). Too bad it doesn’t work with Cumulus.

Hello guys,

I didn't know much about how cumulus supports Oregon WMR89. I have also done an analysis on Oregon WMR89 and there's a different from the last one. I want to know that is cumulus support scientific Oregon? Can I use this for my station?

So it doesn't look like it!
