    LaCrosse support was the same way. They finally did respond to my question, but it was about 3 months after I sent the e-mail! ________________________________

      The last part of your message caught my attention. Is it really true that if you want the Davis solar sensors, radiation and UV, you have to buy the whole system integrated ?!
      It seems odd not to be able to buy them separately and to integrate them into your system later. Buying them into one system like the 24h fan aspirated 6163c seems cheaper. Buying them separately seems to be more expensive. And Davis is not the only one that is not giving you answers to any of your requests, unfortunately Oregon does exactly like Davis.
      But considering the price, Davis has the best offer with it"s solar radiation and UV sensors, plus the 24h fan aspirated shield.
      I would really like to have all the sensors in one system, the problem is the price, nowadays 1000 USD is quite a sum of money...
      All the best, Eugen, Oradea, Romania
