[wxsig] SOurce for 1-wire sensors these days

Mark, Dave, Scott, and John:

Thanks all for the suggestions.  That gives me a lot to look over.  It's
been a long time since I've had to put a system together from scratch and
even more so for it not to be a T238! :)  I feel unfaithful to my own
project!

If you get the X1W-2, the PCB is already laid out for the rain gauge 
interface. You will need to get the 1-wire counter chip, an 
opto-isolator, RJ11 socket to fit the board and a few other small parts.

The RJ11 can be jumped for any gauge that uses a reed switch with a 
tipping bucket. Rainwise and Davis gauges will plug directly into it 
using the default jumpers.

The manual can be viewed on-line at http://www.tapr.org/~n4xi/x1w-2v2/

It was intended as an option to be used with the X1W-1. You had a choice 
of putting the rain gauge interface on the inside board (X1W-1) or the 
outside board (X1W-2). The board also supports the EMP sensor (X1W-4), 
but to my knowledge only my software supports it.
