WeatherCat General Discussion / Happy WeatherCat Anniversary to Me
« Last post by Blicj11 on August 13, 2018, 04:15:37 PM »
Today marks the fifth year anniversary of my first installation of WeatherCat. Back then, it was version 1. Today I am a happy camper with version 3. I followed the forum for a few years before I actually bought the software. I could not be happier with the feature set. Well, I could, just a wee bit, but I am plenty happy with all the improvements and tweaks. Thank you fellow WeatherCatters for all your help (some especially - you know who you are), and thanks to Stu for the best Mac weather software there is!

Good job Cabut. Please let us know how this project turns out.

Dear Cabut, X-Air, and WeatherCat Davis fans,

I decided to go with the Davis 6152 and the Mac data logger 6520 from rainmanweather.com.

I certainly cannot fault that choice.  It is exactly the same model I bought back in 2009!  Of course you'll get the improved rain collector cone and other updates.  Do let us know how all this turns out but I'm confident you'll be very pleased!

Thanks for giving me the nudge I needed! If there is anything iím missing, please let me know.

X-Air has already given you a nice tip.  I think you have everything you need.  About the only thing you might want to consider sometime down the road are some Ferrite cores as described in this WeatherCat wiki entry:

http://wiki.trixology.com/index.php?title=Electronic_Interference_Effects_on_Station_Hardware/Data_Logger/USB_Cable

They certainly aren't necessary, but might provide you with additional peace of mind as far as having a reliable connection from your console to your Mac.

Congratulations!  [tup]

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

Now iíll need a monitor which I hope to find on EBay.
You can go that route, if you have the desktop space, but you can probably find a or even make a 'dongle' that 'tricks the mini (and its graphics port) into 'thinking' there's a monitor attached. Considerably cheaper than a monitor and excellent resolution! ThU5:-)

Fit adaptor at Amazon $9
More expensive version [NewerTech] $25

Assuming you have Airport on the mini, you can then view its video via Screen Sharing. That's how I have my mini set up. If I don't need to access the WC prefs, I simply use File Sharing and access the Finder from my iMac.

Hi all,

I decided to go with the Davis 6152 and the Mac data logger 6520 from rainmanweather.com.
I have a Mini Mac late 2009 I will load with WeatherCat. Now iíll need a monitor which I hope to find on EBay.  I plan to use my old mast from the monitor 2 set up to mount the Vantage Pro 2. Thanks for giving me the nudge I needed! If there is anything iím missing, please let me know.

I don't use the iOS app, does it not use the 'normal' tags that WC offers? You probably use "STAT$TEMPERATURE:MAX:YESTERDAY$TEMPUNITS$" for the hi temp for yesterday. Not sure what "YHIM$" does, but I assume it is the time of the hi temp. I think that time is supplied by "STAT$TEMPERATURE:MAX:YESTERDAY:TIME$" in WC, of course.

Perhaps the dev for the iOS app also has a Manual? 8) Perhaps I should not attempt to answer questions about an app I don't use? [rolleyes2] [rockon]

xairbusdriver you are hired, kinda. STAT$TEMPERATURE:MAX:YESTERDAY$TEMPUNITS$ will work in WeatherCatRCP Reports, but STAT$TEMPERATURE:MAX:YESTERDAY:TIME$ won't.

Grand:

Why did this tag, which is one the sample ones that comes with the iOS client work when I first installed it, but no longer works now?

Yesterdayís high: YHIT$ at YHIW$

Probably because your keen, creative mind said, "Well, if there is a 'Today's High' tag, there ought to be a 'Yesterday's High' tag".
There is no 4-letter tag for "Yesterday's High".:o The sample was "Today's high: THIT$ at THIW$" in R4.
