Not my station but I am posting this on behalf of an overseas user who can unfortunatly not log onto the site due our anti-spam policy of not allowing foriegn IP addresses.

Anyway here it is, its the Greenwood SHS weather station: http://jimi.greenwood.wa.edu.au/weather/

Thanks to a bit of help from Chaser80, I have weather display working on my web, some of the details are a bit incorrect mainly the barometer low, it was showing in absolute and not relative, but all will even out over a couple of days but all settings are working now except the avg and current wind speeds seem to be wrong way around, but searching for a fix check it out here, http://www.ngnautoclub.com/station/narrogin.htm , will soon be 24 hour when we get old pc hooked up, but all data will be uploaded from memory each morning, thanks again CHASER, will work on some custom gauges etc when I have all my other jobs done, (She seems to make the list grow all the time though :? )

I think this thread should be cleaned up to only show links to Personal Weather Stations, and also a sticky or announcement, also admin or mod should put a post at the start that this thread is only for links and no other postings and surely must be more than 3 weather stations out there, hooking up with weather underground is free and shows an excellent record see ozzies above or mine here http://www.wunderground.com/weatherstat ... =IWANARRO2, my own web based use's basic free weather display graphs and dials, and see chaser80's excellent XML setup this comes at a cost as well, just a few examples, me and chaser obviously use our own webs and ozzie's is free setup by underground, there is a program could cumulus that works well with easy weather and other pc software to upload for you and to display cumulus on underground you only have to put in username and password, cumulus also has templates for your own site and again totally free by Sandlay Software, or weather display is a excellent program at a cost and if you have your own site, as a suggestion WA Weather Group should have a station as well

Clean up that sounds like work PK, its not too bad anyway. I know what your getting at though, it would be good to have a list of just members weather stations. The new look web page for the WA weathergroup will have a weather station page that will have all the users weather stations on it. It should hopefully be finished soon, have been fiddling with it for a few months now and recently I have had trouble finding time to finish it off, should hopefully get it done very shortly though.

And the Waweathergroup does have its own station now! well sort of, I have finished off setting mine up so its all up and running and on the web: http://waweathergroup.com/liveweather/ I can also thank Tommo (chaser80) for the advice and lend of his equipment to set it up. He is definitely classed as WAWG weather station guru now! :) Its a dallas 1-wire set up with a temp/humidity board, anemometer and rain gauge. I will be displaying the barometer of the perth site on the above link when I can work out how to get it to work, couldn't justify the expensive of buying a barometer considering barometric pressures dont change that much over a few kms.

nah paid up, I love the look of WDL, nice and clean and very professional looking. Though it has been a difficult road in getting the data uploaded. I am using XP on a mac running VMware fusion and the connection stability on the XP OS is dodgy at best. I think it has something to do with the cache filling up or something but for some reason it drops out overnight, almost every night. Today though I managed to work around this by writing the upload data to file then uploading it on the Mac OS, so far so good! :)

Unfortunatly the metar download wont work this way so I will have to take the barometer 'sensor' of the liveweather page as I had that downloading off the Perth Airport metar.

Well you MAC guys deserve all you get :lol: but seriously I resurrected an older PC running windows 98SE and have that hooked into the network and is stable as can be, was also fine on XP for the 3 weeks it was running their, try the guru's at WD forum, they seem to have all the answers

I have setup Willetton Weather - running for over a year now. I have a WS3600, which isn't perfect by any means, but does the job for an amateur, non-critical weather station.
