Re: [wuhu_software_group] Re: Setup of new Oregon Scientific R-200a
- There must be something wrong with it if the UV sensor does not transmit any data.Read again all the installation instructions very carefully.I have an Oregon UV sensor, a simple one, with the UV index display on the sensor, right in front of my window and I can tell you that in this period of the year the UV index reches level 7, sometimes, for short periods of time can go as high as 8 or very rarely 9, especially after rain, when the sky is clear of all the impurities. In May, June and July usually it can go to level 8, maximum 9, but generally up to 6 or 7, in August 6, maximum 7 and in September 5 or 6.Don't stay outdoor in the sun from 10 AM to 16 PM when the UV is 6 or higher, the UV radiations are extremely strong and the cream with UV protection, even the strongest factor, will not protect your skin from skinburns and something more serious.If you must get out dress up with white clothes and white hat and avoid the sunny areas if you can.All the best, Eugen Radu, Oradea, Romania, East Europe.

Hi --- thanks for the various suggestions. Turns out that the re-leveling and re-sync did it, now instead of "-.--" I see "0.00" and that hakes me happy. Now if I can just figure out the UV sensor problem !!! I figure, I have lived with no idea on UV levels for a very long time and I'm just not going to get too upset about it now.Jaye Ellen KTNGALLA2On Fri, Jun 7, 2013 at 4:48 AM, wuhu_software <wuhu_software@...> wrote:
My only thought on this is to keep the rain bucket as close as possible to the main console.
Most of these wireless stations will retry reception and after so many attempts they decide to disconnect from the device (like the rain bucket). I do not understand that mentality but it is what it is.
The best guess is that the weak signal is resulting in the disconnection and you have to go through a re-synchronization process to recover from it.

> After setting up per the manual, I find my rainfall and UV sensors failed. I disabled rainfall in the WU software and it seemed to wake up. Now in the log it again shows rainfall as failed and I have no report to WU. Is there something I have done wrong (batteries are installed correctly) and the plugs to the UV sensor are (I believe) correctly connected. Any help anyone can give will be very much appreciated !!!
