My weather station has been down for quite some time. I think a few months. I had yet another computer go down. I am now on my 4th computer and am now using an old laptop. This computer should last much longer than the other three very old desktops I was using. Because of this change the weather station name has been updated to El Royer 2.3.Now if I can just keep the hawks off of the weathervane.

I was told that it would take about a month to receive the new / exchange weather station but it only took a week. The next weekend I got the new station back up and running. One week after that the dedicated computer died. I have now dedicated another old computer, bigger, better, faster, reformatted the hard drive. This computer is ...

My weather station (El Royer 1.2) is down. It is all the way down and dissembled. I am having problems with the anemometer, rain gage and temperature sensors not transmitting data to the base unit. The Oregon Scientific - WMR200A has a transmitting range of 300 feet without any abstractions in the way. All of the sensors are within 25 feet of the base unit with ether the roof or one wall of the house in the way. If the Oregon Scientific - WMR200A can not transmit fr...
