    I can't recall seeing any other posts on this subject, so is there any other members who have & use a digital weather station?

    Mine is about two years old & started life as a Maplins unit however the display broke & I replaced it with a Watson unit which works well.

    I've had a Davis Vantage Pro 2 for a few years. It got fried during a thunderstorm a couple of years ago and I keep meaning to repair it. I used to upload onto a web domain that I had registered for it. It was just for fun really but it was only when it went off-line that I started to get emails from windsurfers on the Furness Peninsular who had been relying on it for years and I never knew! I must repair it this year and get it up and running again.

    I like a small & simple unit in the lounge so I'm fussy about the display. I've currently got a TFA Dorstmann one ... they do lots of different models.

    Used a cheap TCM one from Tchibo for years before that till the outdoor sensor unit died. I actually still have that in my workshop for interior temp/humidity and the radio controlled clock!

    Yes it was quite a surprise when they started emailing me!

    Your thread has inspired me to fix it so I'm ordering the components today, I'll get them soldered on sometime on the next couple of weeks and then get the thing running again. I'll register a new domain and upload the readings. I use the weatherlink software which interfaces your PC with the station console and then it automatically updates the web page every half an hour or so.

    I'll do my best TJ but it might be a bit localised! :D
