Hi Martin - first of all I hope your forthcoming house move goes smoothly and that you are soon up and running in your new location.

I came across this new weather station today - it's only about 18 or so miles from me and is located in Banchory-Devenick near Aberdeen: http://www.beannachar-weather.co.uk/index.php .  He doesn't have any contact details on his site but he registered on WXForum on the 24th January as Beannachar.  He has a Peet Bros Ultimeter 800 running Meteobridge - I presume that is compatible with what you need to upload his data?

Maybe an invite from you to join SCWN? Perhaps he could replace the weather station 'Aberdeen' (Westburn Park Weather) who has been offline since about the end of October.

Best regards

Tony

Simple HTML5 live weather page : http://www.ziplockk.com/weather/weather.html

You need to press the run button to initiate the link - allows me to test things . . .

Every update the Davis sends over its wireless link is sent to the connected browser app in real time . . . perhaps overkill, especially when the weather is stable ;-)

Early days yet . . .

Hi,
Welcome aboard.
Nice to see another Meteohub user around. As you're a developer you'll probably appreciate the flexibility that the option of being able to write your own plug-in interfaces offers (e.g. when a neighbour was considering a wind turbine we put an old OS anemometer on a pole up at the proposed site, just in range of my RfxCom Rx, & I was able to set up a plug-in to guesstimate the generation potential based on the power curve for the turbine he was looking at plus the wind data!).  Grin

Hi Folks,

After many years of thinking about it and being interested in it I thought it was time to get involved.

I have a Davis Vantage Pro II without console or envoy, but with a couple of wireless receivers . . . one from smartbedded (which will be sold at some point) and one DIY solution which cost about a tenner with some software I assembled from t'internet - they are equivalent at present.

I'm also writing an HTML5 based live weather viewing page which _could_ be integrated into many things . . . depending on my time . . . I don't want to pay for WD live and be endlessly tired of the format ;-)

To earn a living I design and develop high safety criticality systems for medical and classified purposes, for fun I hillclimb a single seat racing car and go mountainbiking (and try not to collect too many titanium bio-repairs - sadly some are inevitable and some have been collected) . . .

I have a lot to learn about weather but am an endless software and hardware hacker, weather stations being the latest focus . . .

weather.ziplockk.com is where I will record things - this will evolve as time advances and my time allows . . . it's very, very basic at present . . .

;-)

Good to see you're still around.
We can't display the data from your Barra site but good to know it's still there.

I'll be moving later this year from Point to Fort William and all my weather stuff will be going with me so we'll loose my station up here but gain one somewhere in the Fort William area. Not sure exactly where yet as we have to find a house but it'll be Foirt William, Corpach, Spean Bridge, Roy Bridge or Glenfinnan.

All the best with your last year of collage.  Grin

Hello you may remember me I used to run Barra Weather a few years ago until I stopped it in 2013 as I moved away to the mainland to attend college just 1 more year to go until I'm finished  Smiley

Anyway I've found a way to run the website again while I'm away its just a free website to save costs at the moment and doesn't have any fancy WXSIM or Weather Display Live on it but its still going in some form. The forecasts update daily and the live weather is displayed using Wunderground. I use the data from the local station and import it into Weather Display so its very accurate I've found it to be since the station is on top of a hill for recording wind speeds.

Heres the link to the website http://barraweather.weebly.com/

Also I asked a few years ago there appears to be a station on ST Kilda reporting at least a few times a day I read into it and its placed on one of the hills with a elevation of over 1000ft this station will be interesting to watch when its stormy http://www.wunderground.com/personal-weather-station/dashboard?ID=IUNITEDK218

Solving the direction problem will mean getting a replacement, I hope to be ordering that shortly, then I'll need to wait for weather & free time to coincide to allow a change over.
Reasonable weather & free time managed to get together last Saturday, so the direction on the Elgol stats is now looking more sensible  - no longer showing N when everyone else on the West coast has SW!  Grin

Carseweather wind is now back  Smiley Smiley.   A plug had corroded on the anemometer extension lead. A quick trip to Maplin yesterday for a replacement and we are now back up and reporting.

And as part of maintenance the mast is currently at half height, which puts it well into turbulence from the house for any sort of westerly
For a couple of weeks now the mast has been in a new position. Still at half height (~5m) but in good clean air so it's showing speed much more consistently & realistically. Solving the direction problem will mean getting a replacement, I hope to be ordering that shortly, then I'll need to wait for weather & free time to coincide to allow a change over.

My VP2 appears to have worn some grooves in the direction potentiometer around WSW (our most common direction) & the resulting dead spots report as N, hence the reason the Elgol direction is often bucking the trend. The same sort of thing happened about 2 years ago.  Sad

And as part of maintenance the mast is currently at half height, which puts it well into turbulence from the house for any sort of westerly, hence in the early January storm we had a 63mph before midnight, when there was still plenty of S in the direction, rather than something much higher from the WSW in the small hours (my guess is that the full height mast would have recorded at least high 80's, possibly into the 90's).
