Re: New member (will this work?)
It is possible that this station could be supported, maybe.
I would need to know if the software it uses (over USB) is storing
the station history to the hard drive, if so, I need the format of
the data. Sometimes programs output a text file that can be used by
other applications like WUHU.
It would be possible to talk to the weather station directly if the
manufacturer releases the protocol information but that is unlikely.
I ran in to that particular unit about 6 months ago browsing the net.
It is from a Chinese manufacturer. I was briefly in contact with
them, but did not ask for the protocol.
Most manufacturers will not release protocol information. For
whatever reason, they want users to use their software only. I find
that thinking very backward as they are in the manufacturing business
not the software business. One day that will become obvious to them.
