Well nothing is ever finished is it? But I've sorted out just about everything on the Pi/Arduino weather station.

In the last couple of weeks I have:
  • Put a proper antenna on the outside unit (see right)
  • Done a slight upgrade to the solar power to use two blocks of four AA batteries with the blocks in parallel. This is mainly to cope with a higher charge rate which is needed because my neighbour's trees shade my solar cell
  • Generally tidied up the inside of the weather screen
  • Fitted the inside electronics into a case.
What's to come?
  • Well I need a bigger case! (see below)
  • Then I need to do a bit of reprogramming of the Python code and get it up on GIT
  • Start working on the next version!
The case
