Re: OT2 setup with Peet Ultimeter 100
- Hi all,
I have seen exactly same problem...been using OT1+ and wanted to change to OT2M with Ultimeter100....
weather data are useless...in beginning only rain data are reported differently ( hourly rain versus rain since midnight)...
after a while also other data did show extreme values (temp 1000deg Celsius, barometer 1400hPa, etc..)
I first thought thats because I use OT2m also for Digipeater, (hf ingress?) but even if I switch off digi it is very unstable.. so I gave up and reinstalled the old OT1plus in parallel to an OT2m on same radio port.
So I have a wx-station and a DIGI...
but be carefull with LEAP YEAR setting of Ultimeter100 ! You need to have this setup correctly in order to have correct data on serial port.
