Re: [snowkiteidaho] Re: FW: [BSA] ACE Meeting at LP
- This I would say was a hobby unit, it was not reliable.
This would not be a low cost pro unit.
Look elsewhere for that :)
My installation was perfect, location was good.
The stock software was garbage.
I found some that worked, but it was expensive (70$).
Anyway, I hate to see you waste any time on this.
Find something that you know works and go with it.
I'm trying to sell mine, and I can donate the proceeds.

I found some software online for $70, cant remember the name.
Yes i was uploading to WU and also my own private website.
And it did a few others as well. There are several software suites available that support AAG 1-wire.
I'll try to sell my AAG 1-wire and donate the money to you guys.
It wasn't that good (not 100% reliable).On Tue, May 13, 2008 at 9:57 AM, Jason Brickner <jasonbrickner@...> wrote:Hello Dave,The software we are looking at doesn't support the AAG one wire unit. Were you uploading to weatherunderground? What software were you using.Right now I am leaning heavily to theDavis Instruments 7425 Weather Wizard III -$175 (without rain guage, $225 with) - http://www.ambientweather.com/dawewiiii.htmlandVirtual Weather Station - $100 - http://www.ambientweather.com/software.html-Jason
Do you have your weather station hardware selected yet?
I would donate a AAG "one wire" (Temp, direction, windspeed).
This would include the cable needed (I would make custom length for you).
And I could donate the serial RS232 dongle required.

> I had a great meeting with A.C.E. yesterday and they really like us a ton, by far we are
their favorite user group. I met with Joyce, Keith, and Mike to discuss the future plans at
Barclay Bay Beach (BBB). Keith will be taking over the majority of Joyce's day-to-day trivial
duties, but she still wants to be involved in the things that help us. Mike is a new Ranger
and has attempted kiteboarding in his past and seems eager to try it again at LP. It's
awesome to have a fellow wind enthusiast in this situation.
> A.C.E is still working on BBB as a major attraction for ADA (Amer. w/ Disabilities)
members. This summer the first project is to pave the area under the middle shelter and
place a side walk from shelter to Restroom. Eventually there is a plan to make a driveway
and parking area down to that shelter. We discussed many the different possibilities and
potential problems. They are completely open to ideas and suggestions, but there will be a
need to bring vehicle close to that shelter. This is a next year project at soonest.
> Beach Clean up: Well the beach looked good but it does have a massive amount of weed
growth. I'd like to organize a clean up or we can do it independently… There is some
fresh sand and pea gravel that could be spread as needed; unless I'm told otherwise by
next week. Anyone interested in meeting this weekend for weed pulling? I think we will
have to wait a little on the sand /gravel move. I'm out of town the next weekend so I can
not participate then.
> Wind Meter: We have tentative permission to place a wind meter on the RV shelter and
use phone line and building to house CPU. Jason Brickner has found some quality
equipment that is going to run ~$750-1000 to do what we want. Unless someone wants to
write in for a grant, which I could imagine taking years to process, we as a group will have
to finance the purchase of equipment. Any equipment placed there will have to be
available to general public, so we would have to pay for boaters and anyone else who
would like to use this service. It has to be free in the end, and ACE will put up the phone
service. I think that even with the small group that we have, we would only have to donate
$25-50 per person and we could have it completely paid for. (Think of the GAS you would
SAVE!!!!) I will even offer to double the highest donation if needed (up to $100). So please
make a pledge that we as the group can count on. I'm not sure how we can do this
> privately, but for right now if you are willing to go in the range I mentioned above drop
me an email and I'll start to add up our pledges to make sure we are in the Black. I don't
know exactly who in our group is acting as a treasurer, if we have or need one, but this is
an easy deal if we get more than we need we will work it out some how…. Jason is writing
up a memo of intention for ACE and once they give us the green light and if funds are
available we will go forward on the wind meter purchase and install.. I was hoping we
could get the information transferred to the T.V. weather site.

Has anyone hit LP yet?
