Meteobridge does now support Davis repeaters via Meteostick

Post by admin » Sat Mar 07, 2015 1:24 pm

This feature has been requested by quite some Meteobridge/Meteostick users.
Once this new Meteostick firmware has proven to be stable it will be made the next
official Meteostick firmware that can be installed by one-click on "system" tab.

Please find details here: viewtopic.php?f=59&t=10243

I'm wondering how mature the repeater support is now in meteostick?

I have a Davis station in Australia that is constantly having issues with the data-logger locking up inside the Davis console and dropping the data feed to the meteoplug box (MR3020 via RS232->USB). I'm thinking of trying meteostick as a replacement, but the setup uses a repeater (2 hops). Will meteostick work OK in this setup reliably?

Thanks for any thoughts/experience!

I tested it and it worked. What else can I say?

Thank you Boris, I just wanted to make sure it was still supported and that I can expect it to work OK using a Meteoplug client (MR3020). Am I correct in thinking there is nothing special I would need to do inside Meteoplug's meteostick configuration, other than select the appropriate transmitter ID/station type based on the ID being transmitted by the remote weather station at the far end of the repeater link?

Thank you again!

To be honest the Meteoplug client port of the MR3020 is very old and no longer actively supported (as the Meteobridge is todays Meteoplug client). I can for sure speak about Meteobridge and Meteohub and there it is supported fine.

OK, thanks Boris. It sounds like to be sure, I probably need to upgrade this setup to Meteobridge. I'll need to take a look at my options there. Thanks again for the feedback.
