Re: Questions about New Lacrosse-WS2316
LaCrosse seems to follow suit with the models being sold in Europe.
What makes is odd is that the model number vs. changes are all different.
What we have in Europe, that has very much the same configuration is
the WS-2350. It comes with a cup style wind sensor and USB connection.
The only difference between the WS-2316 and the WS-2350 is the
console. WS-2350 has the same console as WS-2300 station. :)
Has LaCrosse given retailers permission to give any model number they
please if they modify the standard packing (WS-2300, 2305, 2308 and so
on) with their own?.
