Weather Station calibration - 30 March 2008 PDF Print E-mail

Certain settings need to be changed on the Weather station before the right information will be uploaded to the website, but I cannot get hold of the office as their lines have been down for several weeks.

I'll try to improve the signal and calibrate the direction while there.
Weather Station installed - 22 March 2008 PDF Print E-mail

The Weather station was installed at Sterkfontein Dam Parks Board offices and the wind meter was raised on a mast above the roof.
Due to my right arm still healing (broken in late January) , I was not able to climb up onto the roof to calibrate the direction or install the rain gauge.
The signal in the office is very weak and web updates are taking place very infrequently; a signal booster will be need to be installed before the updates will take place every 15 minutes.
