Hi guys,

It's been quite a while since I've been around the Hangar, mainly due to my busy study schedule. So hello to everyone again, and I wanted to share the latest gadget I've invested in.

It's said that we Brits are obsessed with the weather, so I've invested in a proper station... or to be more specific - the Davis Vantage Vue, designed and manufactured in the USA...

Here's the main unit. On the left side, the anemometer and temperature/humidity sensor. Rain bucket in the middle. Solar panel and wind direction on the right.

The data transmits every 2.5 secs back to the console wirelessly...

The console displays just about every parameter you can think of. Daily / Monthly / Yearly maximum & minimums of each variable are all stored. It also attempts to forecast the weather (quite accurately) for the next 24 hours. I've also bought a logger which is connected to the PC, so I'm working on setting up a live weather feed too.

I don't have any videos of mine in action, but here's someone else's on youtube...

I bought mine from http://www.weathershop.co.uk/ - great for any weather gadgets .. there's loads of other stations there too.

Thanks for looking. Hope you like it :)

George
