My neighbour Chris a few doors to the north of us now has a live weather station.

That is superb . We might have to sell our cottage at VB and move next door to Dave and Susan. ;-)
I checked that station and it’s amazing.

Could you find out make and model and where purchased? I've been looking for awhile and haven't settled on any particular unit. This one shows data that looks impressive. Also is it SIM capable or only wifi?

Al, Be sure to read sections on batteries. The lithium batteries for the sensor unit are NOT recharged by the unit’s solar panel.

Appears you need to install the wind sensor within 330 ft of the display console. The link between the sensor & console is RF wireless. I’m guessing the display console inside your house/ cottage connects to the internet.

The owner has registered this PWS station on The Weather Underground. Updates on WU appear to be ever 4 to 5 minutes - which is super nice and greatly needed compared to EC’s 1 hour update.

I’ll send emails to iKiteSurf & Wind Alert to they can add this new station to their apps. iKiteSurf usually sets up a PWS on 15 minute updates.

Following email was sent today to both IKiteSurf (weatherflow) and WindFinder.
Both apps are very quick at responding to these requests.

If you want to see this station in another apps, ...suggestion: copy & paste & forward to your favourite weather app.

Exact station location was verified with assistance from Dave C.
