What does everyone think of the Ambient Weather WS-1080?

I don't own one but it looks good for a beginning station. The accuracy seems to be about the same as an Oregon Scientific station. They are made by Fine Offset Electronics. http://www.foshk.com/Weather_Professional/WH1080.htm

Agreed with Jay, if it's a beginner station for yourself or someone else, it's a great buy. If you'd like something accurate or if you'd like to publish the data to the NWS, I would recommend something like a Davis Vantage Pro 2.

Question Ws-1080

Has anyone had experience with WS-2080? How good is it compared to WS-1080?

Question Wireless Woes

I found out that aluminum siding is not a wireless friend. Therefore I returned the unit that I had just purchased with a Davis wired Vantage Pro2 system (6152C). Does anyone else own this model and how is it working? ALSO installing anemometer at 10m (33ft) can be challenging (also target for lightning)?

I don't see a problem with your licenses. Please try to activate them.

I have low E windows , siding - vinyl , and a brick wall, real plaster walls and a steel roof and I average 96% reception on my vp2/ When I had my vp1, I got 87% average reception.

Reception was the main complaint with the VP1.
