09-19-16 Time for Major Overhall of Weather Station!

By: nobyter, 11:11 PM GMT en Septiembre 19, 2016

Okay, 10 years is enough time for the present weather station... I'm having Humidity errors and it doesn't seem to be fixing itself. I plan to take the weather station down for a couple of days and other than the wind and rain gauge, replace everything. I had to order a new temp/humidity sensor, so it may take a week to get it. When it arrives, I will turn off the reporting and almost completely replace the unit. Good news is that it won't cost as much as I wil...

08-11-2016 Webcam Outage

By: nobyter, 4:48 PM GMT en Agosto 11, 2016

Sorry that I haven't been updating this blog, but it seems like there is plenty of other fires to put out around here. A thunderstorm took out my Directv dish, long range wireless Access Point, and another outside camera. My webcam on Wunderground is effected by the long range wireless AP as it now is trying to link with my internal Access Point. I also have to figure out how to clean the plastic cover over the lens of the camera to improve the quality of the cam...

04-22-2015 Weather Station now fixed!

By: nobyter, 1:01 PM GMT en Abril 22, 2015

Wow, my weather station is almost 10 years old! I have a Davis Vantage Pro 2 station that had problems with the capacitor since 2011... I had replaced the capacitor over a year ago, but must have messed up one of the leads when soldering. It failed and now after carefully putting in another one, I think I have it fixed. I also bought a complete remote module with the solar panel, circuit board, and enclosure (~$250). Now I have a new backup just in case... I ...

02-12-14 Snow Dangerous

By: nobyter, 10:54 PM GMT en Febrero 12, 2014

Local VDOT has a thick coating of salt brine on the roads and I saw at least 6 salt plow trucks waiting for this to start. I wonder what people are thinking when they say they didn't know it would get this bad. They were warned... This will get dangerous to all that don't heed the warning! I think we'll get snowed-in.

What kind of weather/webcam?

By: nobyter, 5:53 PM GMT en Enero 21, 2014

I was asked by a fellow weather watcher, what kind of weather station and/or webcam to buy... Here was my reply:

Depends on what you want to spend. I chose the Davis Vantage Pro because I wanted the solar and UV sensors... The Vantage Vue is what a lot of people get... Some use a USB camera inside for webcam as a cheaper alternative.

I also use a weatherplug network computer to store and forward information to Wunderground, CWOP, and APRS FTP...
