Weather Stations

Submitted by ve9sma on Wed, 2023/11/15 - 16:31

I expect to be able to join more nets when I retire (in a month), including the weather net. My question is: what are people using for a weather station? My old station got damaged by racoons, so I will be looking for something new and much more modern and feature rich. I have found very little locally so may need to search online. I'd like something with a color display, an anemometer, rain guage, humidity, wind chill, temp etc. A wifi connected one might be preferable. I have not had a lot of success finding anything near what I want locally. Suggestions?

A new YSF repeater is available to parts of southwestern NB...

This new YSF (Yaesu System Fusion) repeater is located on Cooper Hill in Cooper, Maine (Same location as the more well known 147.330+ FM analog repeater).  It should give pretty good coverage throughout most of Charlotte County.  It is hard connected to Wires-X room #62148 (UFB New England).

The repeater's callsign ID is "KV1B" and it's a mixed mode YSF digital / FM analog system.  Using the digital side, it is linked to many other YSF repeaters around Maine.  Using the analog side, it is a standalone non-linked repeater.  From here, I'll try to keep it simple...
