      Joe,

      Over on the weather forum someone is selling a 3 year old Davis Vue for $200.

      http://www.wxforum.net/index.php?topic=11429.0

      It probably does not come with a logger which you would need to send data to the PC but I have heard those can go as cheap as $75 on eBay.

Roof is probably a good 40 feet off the ground, so the wind readings were good. I learned that I should have my rain collector lower due to blowing wind affecting it. There was too much reflective heat coming off my roof that was giving me much higher readings.

        I replaced my LaCrosse 2308 with a brand new Davis VP2 wireless last summer.  

        I got it for 380 bucks from Provantage Corp (http://www.provantage.com/davis-instruments~880DAVS.htm) on eBay.  They are an authorized reseller of Davis stations and sell them on their site, but regularly put stations on eBay where you can get one for much cheaper.


        I absolutely love the VP2, haven't had any issues with it at all and you can't beat the 2 second updates!

            Actually, I read about the Davis Vue that the original reply came in. When I read more about the Vue versus the Pro2, it seems that the Pro2 is what I really need.

            Thanks for the link to eBay - this looks like they offer great deals. I'm wondering, though, if I should look at the fan-aspirated model for the radiation shield. But I guess if I am looking to post my hygrometer on a fence post just a few feet off the ground and above grass, I might not get much radiation that would interfere, thus lessening the need of the fan aspiration. (That and it's a few hundred $$$ extra too!)

              When I bought my VP2 I thought about the fan aspirator since I had such an issue with my previous temperature gauge and the sun.  My VP2 is in full sun in Southeast Texas and has no problem whatsoever without the aspirator.  You might try it without first, and check performance – you can always add it later.  It would allow you to get the optional UV sensor if you don’t need the aspirator!

                This is good to hear. I'll probably go without it.

                Now, I'm just watching eBay or go with a online retailer (ambiantweather.com quoted me a sub-$400 price for the 6152).

                Thanks again.

My VP2 is in full sun in Southeast Texas and has no problem whatsoever without the aspirator. You might try it without first, and check performance â€" you can always add it later. It would allow you to get the optional UV sensor if you don’t need the aspirator!
