Re: WS-2902

https://www.ambientweather.com/amws2902.html I got my Ambient Weather WS-2902A all hooked up today. It does just as well as my old Ambient Weather WS-2095 in terms of all measurements, and it does way better in terms of not needing to replace Energizer Lithium batteries. I usually have to do that on...

Re: WS-2902

I got one with a second display console on the way. Cumulus was last updated on 11/28/2014 and Cumulus MX was last updated on 1/20/2017. Maybe Steve will update Cumulus MX for these new consoles where a computer can access the weather data on the network and log the data. That would be cool. I wonde...

Getting The Moon Phase Picture Back

I did some digging around on and off and found a pretty good Moon Phase Picture. I think the code has been removed from the Cumulus MX indexT.htm template. From Cumulus 1.9.4, here is the original Almanac code: <!-- Almanac --> <table style="width:100%;border-collapse: collapse; border-spacing:...

Re: Erratic Readings Which Are Too Low

I figured out what was going on. So far it has been about 4 days without an issue. I have a software defined radio (RTL-SDR) which plugs in with a USB cable. I use a program called SDRSharp to listen to radio transmissions. It kind of turns the RTL-SDR into a police scanner. Pretty cool stuff actual...

It was while it was running normally. I decided to try this and let the station catch up: EWtempdiff=10 EWpressurediff=10 EWhumiditydiff=...
