    I would like to have a weather station but I have oak trees so that would blow the wind readings. Maybe I need to see if Harbor Freight has a tower I would use.

    Just wondering...
    That is one I have never seen, but maybe there is a clue in there with the wind readings also. If the station is reachable, try removing the wind sensor cable when this happens to see if it changes the result. Although it may very well be that the transmitter unit (which is where the temp/humidity sensors reside) is bad. If that is the case, we do have replacement parts for the station..

    What kind of station are you looking at? If it's a Davis station, the Remote Anemometer Transmitter can make placement Much more flexible

    Yes, I think you are onto something! I now remember that Spathy had extended his sensor (on a fine offset) and had very similar weird readings when the coupler got wet.

    Yes I did and it was absolutely the extension wire.
    That connection is siliconed and not any place for condensation now!
    Thanks RainMan :O)

    I have another question if you have time.
    Does weatherBunker have a way to link my PWS to my blog or elsewhere on this site?

    I also have been having trouble with my badly maintained Rain sensor.
    It is reading about 1/2 of actual rain falling.
    I know this because I have a very good rain Gauge from RainMan.
    I have tried flushing water through several times.
    I am paranoid of taking it apart to clean.
    I have no clue as to if I should have been doing updates on its software.
    If worse comes to worse,could you email me as to a replacement of a compatible rain sensor.
    Mine is getting fairly old.
    Any thoughts?
