Thanks again Thomas.....

I'm pretty much a software type.  IT is my profession and due to work load
kit building is something that I unfortunately don't have time for anymore.
I've checked the TAPR site and looked at the T-238+Modem Kit but can't find
any reference to a ready-made model.  I agree the 1-wire stuff is very

This may be a good option for me, but I would need to buy it in ready-made
form preferably already in an enclosure.  Can you point me in the right
direction for a ready-made T-238+Modem?

Thanks and 73,

Dave, N1PC

Hi agn Dave.

As far as I'm concerned (no bad thing about Davis though), today I would 
rather go for the TAPR APRS weather station. Here's the link: 

Why? Well, here's some good reasons (from my point of view):

1. It would be a lot cheaper
2. It is far more extendable and flexible than the commercial 
WX-station, you can add (or leave out) sensors that you do not need
3. You can get those weather data available for other applications 
(heating control, moisturizing etc...)
4. It is intended for the APRS network as default (Davis is not)
5. It would give the joy of doing something yourself (can be bought 
ready-made also, in case...)
6. After putting it to work one would have a greater understanding of 
what it is doing and why.

Well, anyway, GL with your weather project.
73:s, Thomas OH6NT

I know you believe you understood what you thought I 
said, but I'm not sure if you realize that what you heard
is not necessarily what I meant. * The Porridge Guru *
