Re: Intermittent wind speed in Fine Offset WH1080

Hi,

That appears to have fixed it! I'll give it a few days before I climb back up on the shed, just in case..!

Thankyou again for all your help.

Re: Intermittent wind speed in Fine Offset WH1080

Thank you again for this help - as I just have wind and rain sensors, is it the 6P4C RJ11?

Re: Intermittent wind speed in Fine Offset WH1080

Thanks very much for all of this. Clas Ohlsen (who I purchased the original unit from in Feb 2016!) very kindly sent me a replacement transmitter unit after I identified the corrosion. Is it very easy to rewire the two cables that go into this or will I need a special crimper to fit the phone plugs ...

Re: Intermittent wind speed in Fine Offset WH1080

Apologies for taking ages to reply - been on my hols! Are all the cables just standard telephone cables? Sounds like I need to take it down, give it a clean and replace them

Oregon WMR89

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

Fine Offset station protection

I purchased a Fine Offset (WH1080 base, WH14C transmitter) from Klaus Ohslen a year ago. Last week it stopped transmitting (or maybe receiving?), the red LED showing permanently, I trawled the forums and tried everything suggested, changed batteries, unplugged everything, changed cables.. but unfort...
