Good Morning from Guildford UK
« on: September 24, 2017, 10:11:01 AM »
Hi,

Well its morning here in UK as I type. Located between Guildford and Woking in Surrey SE UK (Inland, 100'amsl at 50°N 0°W), I've been a Davis VP2 (Vantage Pro 2 6162UK) user for around 8 years. In terms of durability, I had a warranty replacement of the console as the LCD screen developed a bleed on the screen. I had to replace the  OV transmitter replacement module and on two occasions the anemometer reed switches. I have been on a another weather forum but as this one is for Mac users here I am!  My next post will describe how to replace the anemometer reed switches about which I haven't seen anything much posted.

Dear MervynG, Reinhard, Felix, and WeatherCat welcome wagon, . . . .

By all means welcome to the WeatherCat forum!

Well its morning here in UK as I type. Located between Guildford and Woking in Surrey SE UK (Inland, 100'amsl at 50°N 0°W), I've been a Davis VP2 (Vantage Pro 2 6162UK) user for around 8 years. In terms of durability, I had a warranty replacement of the console as the LCD screen developed a bleed on the screen. I had to replace the  OV transmitter replacement module and on two occasions the anemometer reed switches.

Your station has required substantially more repairs than mine which is the same age.  I suppose your weather puts more stress on your weather instruments.

I have been on a another weather forum but as this one is for Mac users here I am!  My next post will describe how to replace the anemometer reed switches about which I haven't seen anything much posted.

So do you download your weather data onto your Mac?  If so how do you do this?

Once more welcome!

Cheers, Edouard
