That's not cool.  Not that'd I'd really expect more from front-line tech 
support.

I had a problem with the La Crosse rain gauge giving high readings, but I 
had it plugged into an OpenTracker, not the base unit.  I just had to use a 
lower value for the pull-up resistor to make sure it had enough current for 
the long cable.  The internal one in the I/O pin is very weak.

I'd say add a ferrite or two on the cable for starters.  Does the reading on 
the display jump all at once when the bucket tips, or is it getting stray 
readings when it hasn't actually tipped?
