11/5/2005 - This project has been in the works for quite a number of years now. I finally got some equipment today that will help in this venture. Today we started the process of taking down a neighbors antenna. Ouch, this is a little bit of work! KB2PQE was the ground crew today - KC2NDA

07/21/2007 - Almost 2 years! Ouch! Time to work and get some progress done. The anemometer and wind direction devices have been disassembled.
There was a problem with one of the IR detectors (one was broken, possibly temperature effects?). The circuit has been reverse engineered and a new circuit is in the works.
The project design will include a solar self powered circuit that will transmit the information to a receiver attached to the computer (This means no more wires!).
