Thanks to Edouard for the heavy lifting. I think this is about the cheapst you’ll find the 6555 but by the time you add in the ridiculous S&H, I suspect you can do better with a good internet search.

The only thing you’ll need out of the box will be the logger, running the software requires Windows. Plug in to the console and the other end into your router or router extender via as long of a cable as required as long as it has a free Ethernet port. Or an Ethernet hub as Edouard mentioned.


Once ordered, we’ll go over configuring WC properly (or you can read the manual or the WC Wiki). And why you’ll need an IP scanner (the free LanScan works just fine) to eliminate any guessing about identifying the station’s address which WC will need.


Since you’re already familiar with WC, you know what your upload options are.

I would buy the Meteobridge Nano instead of the WiFi unit mentioned earlier in the thread. My 0.02¢.
A clear conscience is a great pillow.

Dear DFW and WeatherCat gadget cataloguers

I would buy the Meteobridge Nano instead of the WiFi unit mentioned earlier in the thread. My 0.02¢.

Thanks for the reminder!  [tup] I just plain forgot about that option.

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

P.S.  So did you decide to buy one and try it out?  I always prefer to know that a product works with WeatherCat before recommending it to any other WeatherCat user.
