An Inexpensive APRS Weather Station

Home Page

This project is for anyone that would like to build an inexpensive, but still high quality weather station. The station is based on the Dallas Semiconductor 1-Wire® sensor unit that provides wind speed, direction, and ambient temperature. The software now also supports the Dallas 1-Wire rain guage as well. The station is primarily intended to provide data for broadcast over the amateur radio APRS network, but works quite nicely as a stand-alone weather station as well.
After 300+ units and a 10 year run, the kit has finally been discontinued
