VA3DBJ.ca Weather Station Updated

After 8 years of operation, the old Oregon Scientific weather station has finally been retired, as it was having issues staying all connected to the console.

So I have updated to the Ecowitt HP 3500B Weather Station.

It also has a lightning detector, that should monitor lightning strikes up to about 40 km.

Bowmanville 40 km Radius 1

Advanced notice to disconnect my radios. Lets see how that goes. 🙂

UPDATE: Well, the new system detected the lightning this morning and followed it out to the east towards Trenton.
