My station is currently sending data to the following:

The station was first activated around November 2007. I decided to put my data online for the New Year 2010. My first site was built around the Hamweather software suite. On 6/21/13 I took down the old site and rebuilt it around the Carterlake/Saratoga templates.

I'm using Virtual VP from SoftWx to allow me to run 3 different weather programs concurrently, through the creation of virtual COM and TCIP ports. I use SoftWx's VPLive to send data to CWOP since it "calculates the station pressure (i.e. actual pressure), altimeter pressure, and running averages needed to properly generate and send APRS/CWOP data." For system hangs and outages I'm running StartWatch, also from SoftWx.

For the main site I'm using Weatherlink from Davis. I'm using Cumulus for realtime to send data to Weather Underground and PWS/HamWeather/WeatherForYou.

The Davis ISS temp sensor is positioned exactly 5 feet AGL. The anemometer is 20 feet AGL on the ridgeline of my house.
