Weather Station Installed


Tonight, I completed the installation of a weather station at home. One of the reasons why I got into amateur radio a couple of years ago was to experiment with packet radio (APRS) and to set up a WX node on one or more public weather networks. Tonight, I’m on the Citizen’s Weather Observer Program (CWOP) and Weather Underground. I’m hoping my wife will warm to the idea of having the sensor array on the back fence. Her initial comment was:

“Now all the folks walking on the trail [behind our home] will know who’s house is the geekiest.”

My thoughts exactly!

  1. I installed some solar radiation shielding around my thermometer/barometer unit on Sunday, July 10, 2011. My thermometer now passes the MADIS standard deviation tests, but my barometer is still off. I’m still tweaking the altitude settings on the software

  2. Ugh! No sooner did I get the temperature readings dialed in, and the laptop I was using to log and transmit data died. I hope to get the replacement up and running this weekend.
