I have an older Heathkit Weather Station with LED displays (ID-4001) but when I connected a ribbon cable to the data port it made a very large amount of radio interference just by being connected. Maybe the later model with an LCD display and RS-232 interface solved that problem.

". . . . The atmosphere and the earth are part of the same system and rotate together, so if everything was static there would be no friction between the atmosphere and the surface of the Earth.However the atmosphere is a fluid and there is unequal heating between the equator and the poles. The unequal heating causes air density and pressure differences, and the atmosphere develops a circulation. Because the Earth is a rotating sphere the motion of these circulations are deflected to preserve angular momentum. The resulting pattern of atmospheric circulation becomes quite complicated.In the simple case of a non rotating Earth air would rise at the equator and descend at the poles, and at the surface of the Earth there would be a pole to equator ward return flow, that is a northerly wind in the northern hemisphere and a southerly in the southern. This would make a single "cell" of circulation equator to pole in both hemispheres.However as the Earth is rotating, rather than one circulation cell, we have three. The full hemisphere cell mentioned above reaches only to about 30° latitude and is called the Hadley cell (Wiki). The rotation of the Earth affects the cell by deflecting the surface return flow to the west in both hemispheres. These are the NE trades of the northern hemisphere and the SE trades of the southern hemisphere.
The other two circulation cells are the Ferrel (Wiki) and the Polar cell (Wiki). The Ferrel Cell runs in the opposite sense to the direct thermally driven Hadley cell, so the surface winds run the opposite way as well, and are deflected in the opposite way. So in the northern hemisphere in the mid-latitudes the average/predominant wind would be a SW wind. However the Ferrel circulation is much more complicated than this simple picture suggests, and there are flows both north and south, though both are generally from the west."

|After the painters removed it from the house,
it was out of the Sun
and has stopped working.
0. remove battery cover
1. Charge Ni-MH battery in charger 30 mA overnight.
2. Install battery
3. Select Channel 1, 2 or 3
3. Press reset using paper clip for 10 seconds to set channel.
Hold so solar panel is oriented same as when mounted
4. press TEST and see if LED adjacent to TEST button lights green.
The above was not enough. To get sync, see IMPORTANT
There was a problem getting the indoor unit to synchronize
with the new outdoor unit.
|Unit fell on floor breaking off the antenna.
Replaced with some lead wire (solder is easy to shape) and
hot melt glue. Works fine.
Note Channel 1 not synced.
It did after removing the 4 AA batteries and pressing RESET
with paper clip.
