With a battery backup that actually has a battery, a pro weather station and a reliable connection we should be in business for years to come! Did the timer get installed to reset the router each day? I'm excited to see how we'll this new setup works!

You can adjust it back for Tom’s site.
The data being uploaded to (Weather Underground) Wunderground site for KIDBOISE49 is correct however. It matches what the unit is reading.
Sounds like I need to remove the adjustment that I did when posting to Tom's site:
1. I added 180 degree to the wind direction to give the correct indicate
2. I've reduce the wind strength by 15% which seems accurate when compare to what it felt like and how it was reporting when I was last up at LP.

Jon Bolt and I setup the NEW weatherstation at lunch today. The new unit seems ‘pro’ compared to the old unit. Only the number will tell. So far so good since wind was light and variable up there. The windvane is properly aligned and the wind speed seemed right on. It’s also completely unobstructed to speed should reliable. There is no ability to trim the speed reading so “what it is… is what it is”.
Thanks Rusty… You did an incredible job researching and ordering the equipment. The setup seems rock solid and reliable. I’m hoping it hold up well in the ‘hotbox’.
Thanks for your help as well Jon. Good working with you.
And Kudos to whoever designed the pole mounting bracket. Beautiful… Brilliant… Eddy, was that you?
Hoping for wind tomorrow.
