'Thanks - Measure Weather Stuff'
I wanted to thank Mike Long, Dennis Frost, Steve Childress, Michael
Hagberg, Jeff Martin, and W. Stein for replying to my question about
projects related to measuring wind speed, wind direction, and temperature
with Stamps/PICs. I am in the process of figuring out which of the
suggestions to attack first. If anyone else has any thoughts or ideas,
I'm still interested.
Maplin, RS Components, and Farnell were sited as possibilities for kits
and transmitters/receivers. I'm in the USA and am not familiar with
those companies. Are they represented in the USA? Or do you know of
some similar companies here?
Sorry if I come in a bit late on this topic..

During the summer I built a weather station able to measure temperature,
wind speed and wind direction with a BS1-IC. The temperature is done
with a DS1620 from Dallas and for the wind part I used a ready made
anemometer/wind vane by Davis. The weather information is then sent to
a PC that performs corrections and average calculations as well as
presentations and logging of the measured weather data.
It was a challange to fit it in a BS1-IC but it's doable ;-). See the
L.O.S.A #039 for more info...
Hope this helps,
