my station (transmitter),a week ago was at about 200 feet and at eye level and had no problem of reception as long as the receiver was on the window shelf .Ive changed the location because of the kids always playing around it hehehe. Now its about 75 feet on an old electric post just beside the new electric post and about 5 feet of the main power lines.All data received are clear,no interferences due to power lines so my advice is go for this one hehehe.

the only thing is that its not updating datas as often as id like.its updating every 40 seconds.Id like it to go instant transmission hahaha

Nice to see this is alive again.
looks like the WS can be "upgraded" more
especially increasing the sendtime from 48 to 8 seconds would be nice.

@mike60,
not at all,keep those ideas coming.

myself i have extended the weather relation to planetracking.
depending the wind direction ,i am in the landing/take-off path(schiphol-amsterdam),also nice to see them fly around a thunderstorm.

For all user with WS1080 or 1081 please write here.
WS1080 are manufactured Fine Offset. OK ?
WS1083 looks like WS1080 but are 433MHz transmiter and are La Crosse :D with Cumulus

Do you know about this ?

That WS1083 is not a La Crosse, it's a Fine Offset. It just happens that the shop selling them are called La Crosse Technology, who now also sell Fine Offset stations :)

Interesting that the screen shots they show are of Cumulus and not EasyWeather!

The same outfit also trades under the name of Scientificsales. http://www.scientificsales.co.nz/wirele ... h-usb.html If you do a whois on both URL's they point back to the same person.

La Crosse Technology also sells the WS1083 and other Wx stations etc on the local online auction site here in NZ http://www.trademe.co.nz/Members/Listin ... ber=732403 for a lot less than what is the stated price on their retail website.

I got mine through Trademe and the manual that came with it pointed to the scientificsales site for download of the software. http://www.scientificsales.co.nz/software.html They do have Easy weather available too but seem to push Cumulus. They currently only have V1.8.6 available from their website.

Cumulus is a FREE Software package designed for our WS1081 & WS1083 Professional Weather Station.

Please Check Images for Screen Shots in the above Tab.

Cumulus is a program for retrieving, storing and displaying data from an electronic Automatic Weather Station (AWS).

Cumulus will store full weather records, along with daily and all-time records, and graphical data. Cumulus can upload its data to a web server and comes packaged with templated web pages for this purpose. Cumulus also supports automatic uploads to Weather Underground and CWOP/APRS.

Cumulus works with the Davis Vantage Pro and Vantage Pro2 weather stations, and the Oregon Scientific WMR-928 and WM-918 weather stations, and related models.

Cumulus is in use on our own Davis Vantage Pro2 weather station, and our data are uploaded to our weather website: Sanday Weather. The web template in use there is packaged with Cumulus, and the commented CSS file is included in order that users may adapt it for their own use, changing the colours and background image as desired. You can, of course, write your own web pages from scratch, and use the ‘web tags’ feature to make Cumulus insert your weather data at the appropriate places. See the help file for more details.

Yes, Craig (scientific sales) is a forum user, he posted just the other day. He contacted me before putting the stuff about Cumulus on his web site.

thanks steve for the sticky,should be usefull/easier for others.
together with the sticky-topic from Gina about the sensors,we could find out everything about the station.
unfortunately i had a major crash of my HD and motherboard failure so i lost a lot of stuff about the vane and its connections and resistance values etc.
they should still be somewhere here on the forum so if Gina could copy/paste them in her sensor topic(feel free to copy them from my site),then it all would be in one place.
still trying to find and rescue things to my netbook which now at least keeps my site running.

I'm glad your thread has been found again, hans :) I have the resistor values and circuit of the wind vane from the full size version of the circuit board photo so I'll post that. I think I checked it against your values at the time but I'll see what I can find as final check.

Good luck with your data recovery.
Gina

Sorry, no banner - weather station out of action. Hoping to be up and running with a new home-made one soon.

This is an excellent thread, love the pictures. Does anyone know if I can by a pressure sensor (barometer) any where to try and replace mine and get it working correctly?
cheers

Has anyone investigated replacing the receiver antenna with a highly directional yagi? Also has anyone looked into decoding the signal from the transmitter itself, maybe using a radio scanner and PC interface?
