- ... I run sorta the same setup, had the same problems. My station is 2810 not a davis but the setup should still work for you. My solution was to put WUHU inMessage 1 of 4 , Dec 5, 2011View Source
i understand now about ten minute gust.VWS sends gust at 0,10,20,30,40,50,every time.WUHU seems to send data to CWOP at 0,10,20,30,40,50,1,11,21,31,41,51,12,22,32....so WUHU gust wont match what VWS is sending.I can change the way VWS calculates gust and period.i dont think it really matters.BTW i have a DAVIS WxMonitorII that sends datan trru datalogger to VWS which then creates a csv file every two seconds that is sent to WUHU.Great setup and WUHU is great software. Thank you
I run sorta the same setup, had the same problems. My station is 2810 not a davis but the setup should still work for you.
My solution was to put WUHU in front of VWS. WUHU collects directly from the station, and does the uploading to WU etc... and VWS reads the heavyweather files then produces the graphs etc.
Then VWS reads the currdat.lst that wuhu produces. I found that you have far greater reliability with WUHU doing the collecting than VWS.
Inside the vws directory, rename the hw.exe to hw.old , (or if it doesn't exist just) copy in it's place notepad.exe and rename it to hw.exe (In this config, VWS requires that Heavyweather runs it will auto launch it. This is to trick VWS into thinking Heavyweather is running, but in fact it is just notepad)
Configure VWS as a LaCrosse WS-2xxx Series.
Configure WUHU to directly connect to the serial port. Set it up as your Davis.
Yours is going to be the Davis here. Important part is output the currdat.lst so that VWS can read it.
Go back to VWS setup, and make sure it reads the currdat.lst
Start WUHU, then VWS, and away you go.
