Re: Connecting wind and rain sensors (build your own station

Hi Clive, I'm happy for you to do whatever you want with it, after all, it was the official weather station that inspired me to do this. I do have more details, I just need to finish writing this up and find a way of making it public. Chris I'll blog it on the Raspberry Pi site, let me know when yo...

Re: Connecting wind and rain sensors (build your own station

Hi Chris -- this is excellent and we'd love to make use of it (deserves a blog at least!) if you are OK with that. Do you have more details / a blog etc, as others have asked? Thanks.

Re: temperature difference between ground and air sensor

Interesting.... we're hoping to get a weather station calibrated next to professional equipment soon and may be able to compensate in software accurately. In the meantime -- this is exactly the trouble shooting and hacking that we hope to encourage! (OK, so this wasn't deliberate, but still... :))

Re: dtoverlay=pcf8523-rtc command problem

A lot of the instructions refer to the older Raspbian distro (7, aha weezy) rather than the current (9, aka Jessie). Not ideal I'm afraid. Thank you for your reply.

Hi Gimbal and ej3-martin -- documentation and board designs are something we'd definitely like to publish / blog about. Once the dust settles on the shipping of the official kits we'll be looking at this. In the meantime, if anyone in the community does anything along these lines, please share here!...

Re: Input/output error

Hi -- can you run the different python files individually, for instance run sudo ./HTU21D.py

One of these python files will probably throw that same error and then you'll know which sensor is having the problem. Then we can diagnose further.

Re: i2c not working when inside enclosure

Tricky to diagnose without having it in front of you! Thoughts: check that the HAT is properly connected to the Pi and is not pushing against something when in the enclosure. Long shot: check if there are any possible shorts inside the enclosure (ie something that might be causing a short circuit on...

Re: Download of image

Hi Jorge, The card that comes with the station is just a standard Raspbian image. This formats the card into various partitions that won't appear in Windows Explorer (if that's what you are using) The foolproof way to fix this is to reformat the card using a special SD formatting tool . This will re...

Re: About the soil temperature sensor

It's just an additional (waterproof) sensor for some flexibility / data. As Jim says it is just a simple temp sensor -- you can leave it out or extend the cable or even use it for eg external / internal temps if you are using a Stevenson screen, say.

Hi ismagago -- we do plan to do this in the next couple of weeks, we're hoping that it will encourage collaboration (with nearby schools and/or schools in a very different parts of the world)

In the meantime, here's a rough map of where the stations will be:

Hi -- the SD card should have been in the kit. If it's not, sorry if it's been missed out! The easiest & quickest thing to do would be to get hold of a micro SD card ( 8Gb or larger).
