The great no weather mystery (solved)
« on: March 10, 2020, 01:41:48 PM »
This is a real  Banghead

For a long time now we've had wireless weatheromenters of various forms.  Started with a 1980s? Radio Shack thermometer but more recently have had 4 extra most measuring temperature, rain and wind

Well about a year ago the Radioshack one started losing its signal, changed batteries etc and eventually relocated it.  Then the full weather station Mrs K got me for my 60th started to lose information.  First wouldn't display rain, then no wind display and then no display of any wireless information even if I put base station and sensor transmitter next to each other.  We took the base station to the tip, bye bye 60th birthday pressie

Then the Radio Shack original started going wrong again, then the two displays slaved of another set of sensors starting losing outside temperature, then wind.  Finally the outside temperature one that projects temperature and time on the bedroom ceiling wouldn't find the external sensor or the radio time signal.   Several days of changing sensor batteries etc no luck except in short bursts, the Radio Shack one even lost it's temperature display on the sensor

I found myself shouting it's like someone is jamming them all

So 3 O'Clock in the morning the penny dropped.  Something was

The clues are all in the above.  First person to spot it gets a virtual pint
Well, whatever nevermind

Nope, it was ye olde Radio Shack transmitting sensor.  Bastard thing, I prolly threw away a perfectly good base station (120 + postage from Switzerland to replace)

Can't you just look out of the window like most people?  rubschin:
Nah

Right now it's 11.2o, 0.09 inches of rain in last 24 hours and 3.6mph wind.   It's an English thing finding such interesting

Ta looks good (esp for the price) but to be same as one we had it needs to be this one.  And I want to avoid having to put another load of sensors out there
