Weather Station Setup

By: Wavestorm , 9:56 AM GMT on December 31, 2013

Basically, my weather station is a modified La Crosse 2316, operating since 2009. In order to make this rather inexpensive weather station more robust, I made the following modifications:

All solder joints redone using lead based solder to eliminate circuit problems with high vibration in windy conditions.

Conformal coating done on all of the circuit boards.

Cables shortened to eliminate errors in data transmission.

Thermohydro transmitter module mounted into a radiation shield.

Everything runs wireless using batteries to protect against lightning strikes.

Base station connected directly to a Raspberry Pi model B running WView. The RS232 level translator circuit was bypassed to pass LVTTL serial data directly between the unit and the onboard serial port of the Raspberry Pi unit.
