Weather Station!

I just bought myself the Oregon Scientific WMR-968 weather station (and no, I didn\’t pay the list price of $299.99 – Google it, there are much lower prices out there!), and I have to say, it\’s a fairly nice piece of equipment. The unit comes with 4 sensors – an indoor baro/thermo/hygrometer, outdoor thermo-hygrometer, rain gauge, and anemometer. All of these sensors come together in a slick little main unit, which features touch-screen controls, weather forcasting, history, you name it, it probably has it. The base station is also capable of detecting 3 optional sensors – I had an old Oregon Scientific indoor/outdoor wireless thermometer (don\’t know the model, sorry), and the base station started picking up info from that sensor right away.
