We have long wanted to add a Weather Station at our QTH. We attended the Dayton HAM Fest this year and had a chance to talk with the folks at Davis Instruments and to look at their weather stations. We decided to take advantage of their show special and purchase a Vantage Vue Weather system. We also purchased their WeatherLink IP option as well as an additional Vantage Pro2 console for the system. These options will allow us to connect the weather station to the internet so that we can use our iPhones and iPads as well as PCs to monitor the weather at home from anywhere in the world. Finally, we are going to fabricate a custom tower standoff mount for the station. Stay tuned for a future post showing the installation and the final results of our weather station project.
