data logger thing is the one that bothers me..do you NEED it
to connect your weather station to your computer? Do you need
the Virtual WEather STation to publish to the internet?

claims wireless to 1000 feet. That may be needed/a plus at our
school. I hope to mount the unit on the roof of the gym.

main concern is...Ok, solar means I don't have to replace
batteries up on the roof, but if the solar wears out(does it?)
then what do I do. Now you mention the solar charges internal
batteries for use when no sun..so that is good.

I would like to stay in the $300-350 range. Could anyone
suggest a good model? Something I am looking for is that it
has very near to real-time reporting. I want it to publish on
the web such as WU. I also hope to be completely wireless from
the roof-top unit to the console in the building. Is solar
good? (no batteries to change?-or do they not last?)
