Hello to Group Members,
My name is Brian Kings of Geraldton
I have only joined very recently and am in the throes of getting things right after having played around with my new W/S for the past week.
The W/S I have is a Digitech XC- 0348 which I bought from a local electronics shop here in Geraldton. These weather stations are also sold under other names such as Maxcom and in the U.S.A. under the name of Zephyr. Possibly I could have paid a cheaper price through Ebay, but I needed the option to be able to return it if unsatisfactory - hence I paid for the priviledge. Not to worry I am quite happy with it, and seems to be capable of generating plenty of data - both on the Base unit as well as on the PC.
The problem I would like to overcome is how to start the W/S right on the hour for recording purposes as things are, I am a few minutes out with every 30 minutes instead of say 12 noon
- it updates at say 11:57 and again at 12:27 and so on every 30 minutes. Not every hour and on the hour so to speak.
I was thinking of removing the batteries and re-inserting them right on the hour - if that is an option or perhaps someone has a better method.
I know the B.O.M. do their rainfall at 9am each day and I was wondering if it would be Okay to use 9am as the initial Startup time for the base as well. I really don't suppose one has a choice. Everything lined up at the starting gate. Eh!
I would like to say thankyou in advance for any solution - which I am sure will be quite a simple one.
