Davis Vantage Pro 2

The weather station in use here is the Davis Vantage Pro 2+ (6162au).

The station consists of a main console, and a ISS unit, which consists of rain gauge, temperature/humidity sensor (inside a radiation screen), and a anemometer, which is powered via a solar panel that charges a capacitor for overnight power.


This 6162au model operates on the 915 to 928MHz, as the USA version (902 to 928MHz) utilises frequencies licensed to the Vodafone network. The EU and UK version operates at a slightly lower frequency that is licensed to Telstra. This special Australian version is only available via an "Exclusive Distributor" (or their resellers), at an expected premium prices.




Oregon Scientific WMR-918N

The weather station previously in use here was Oregon Scientific WMR-918N.

The station consists of a main console, a internal temperature/humidity/barometer unit, a rain gauge, outdoor temperature/humidity sensor (inside a home made Stevenson Screen), and a anemometer. The 3 outside sensors are powered via a solar panel with rechargeable batteries for overnight power.


This WMR-918N model operates on the 433MHz.


As this stations outside temperature sensor is exposed to direct sunlight, it was decided to build my own Stevenson Screen to increase the accuracy of the temperature readings.
