As of July 19, 2016 the revised ADS-WS1 is back in production, with updated sensors and an almost complete rewrite of the firmware for better performance and reliability. New orders should ship within 10 days.
The ADS-WS1 is a complete low-cost APRS weather station suitable for direct connection to a radio (no TNC required) or a PC (via RS-232). It also includes voice synthesis capability to read current weather conditions over the air without a PC.
- Wind Vane
- Rain Gauge
- 2-Part Mast
- Mounting Hardware
The electronics package includes temperature, barometric pressure, and humidity sensors, plus 2 MB of flash memory for voice synthesis and data logging. The box should be mounted in a sheltered location, or used indoors and connected to external sensors. Currently only an external temperature sensor is supported.
With the current firmware, serial port 1 puts out 2400 baud data in Peet Bros data logger format and has been tested to work with Virtual Weather Station and Weather View 32.
