    Hi,

    For what that is it is over priced. It basicaly only does what similar stations that are £40-50 can do but has optinal uv sensors and water sensors which i doubt you would use. (most of them dont have a baromoter though...)

    For that price range i would go for this.

    Or This

    Although if you can stretch your budget i would go for one of these:

    http://www.meteorologica.co.uk/product.asp...a=&PT_ID=76

    Does pretty much everything and you can connect it to the pc! So if you think that you might outgrow that other station then it's probably better to go for this one.

    I am in the process of making a weather station guide which i'll try and post up at the end of the week :D

    p.s I have one of the older models of that for sale cheap(used it for a year). PM if you would like more info ;)

    If you can i would go for that one, the next step up is full weather stations. So what you are getting is pretty decent for the money :D

    You should probably have a look at some of the La Cosse stations as well, they can be a pretty good price although i dont have any experience with their reliability/accuracy etc.

    Hi, How big is the probe to detect the forcast and the bucket? http://www.oregonscientific.co.uk/product....amp;m=0&i=2 . And Is that bucket to collect the rainfall and it sends info to your weather station? http://www.oregonscientific.co.uk/product....amp;m=0&i=1

    And where is the best place to but these can you put them in your garden or best on top of roof depending how tall and big the probe is. thanks

    Hi mate,

    The anemometer (wind sensor) would be best placed on the roof. I think officialy it's ment to be 3m or something above the roofline. But as long as it's clear of obstructions and above the roof line it wont really matter.

    The rain gauge should just go on the grass as far away as possible from any walls/the house/trees/tarmac etc anything thats going to stop preciptiation getting into the gauge or a hard surface thats going to let in "bounceback" when the rain hits a hard object next to the gauge and spray effects the readings.

    Hope that helps :unknw:

    Yeah, way too tall so only put it half a metre or a metre up above the highest point on the roof if possible :unknw: (or wherever you can get it really)
