For item #1, see http://www.beals5.com/wx and select "how to build a T238".
About half way down is the suggested circuit for radio power control.  The
same circuit will work on a T238+.  The other guy who is doing this actually
put the circuitry on the modem board which is a good idea.  Per the warning
above the schematic, this allows you to "remove" the circuit if you ever
need to use the software development tools for some reason.

To your last comment, the T238s send data out every five minutes.

Subject: RE: [wxsig] Wind application

Thanks to all who posting regarding my mountain top wind application. The
ham radio approach looks promising. I'll try to keep track of what I learn
and post progress reports. If you have specifics about these items, feel
free to direct me as I am quite the amature:

1) How to augment the T238 for power mgt as suggested by Will.

2) Good ideas for power supply/solar cells.

3) Good ideas for lightning protection?

I'm not looking for continuous readings. Once every 3 to 5 minutes is plenty
for my application.
