    Hi,

    I am looking to purchase my first weather station having had an interest in the subject for many years.

    I would also like to connect to my laptop and collate the information.

    Any advice on which model to go for? I am prepared to spend up to £200

    Many thanks

    ps I have just spotted the NW site with the Equipment on sale. Still confused!

    LaCrosse 2350 is a good starter model at a reasonable price. Also Maplin have some low priced kit that can connect to a PC.

    Many thanks for the tip. Dropped into Maplins today but they only had very basic kits which were not connectable by usb to pc.

    hi G

    I'm sure there is a link somewhere to NW having these available or at least a link to the site, have a good browse around I'm sure you will find a link somewhere, and try in Google, there are lots of sites for the price you want to pay.

    Welcome to NW as well.

    Many thanks John and Bristolwx.

    I have found the NW site and now making my final choice.

    Can I also say that I have enjoyed your posts John and find them extremely informative thus my wanting to take weather watching t the next step.

    I have been a member of NW since 2005 and with a Weather Station I hope to be able to contribute to the discussions. :doh:

    That's a pity.

    I had a LaCrosse 2300 from the UKweathershop (Older model of 2350) and had no problems with it at all until it got smashed by a falling wall. I have purchased quite a lot of equipment from them with excellent customer service and the 2350 and the mounting kit would be well within your price range.

    Hope that helps you.
