Doesn't Like The Cold,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: TFA 35.1099 Primus Radio-Controlled Weather Station (Garden & Outdoors)
I bought this weather station in November 2009, the first one I had, would not work properly, so it was replaced,
the second system, I have had continual problems with over the past 3 years, the hygrometer has had to be replaced,
the rain gauge has had to be replaced am now on the 3rd one, and the wind gauge has also had to be replaced.
Basically the outdoor gauges, periodically stop sending the reading to the weather station, the company TFA-Dostmann, are of
the opinion that there is an electrical interference in the area where I live, that stops the signal getting through, but it
seems strange that, it only happens when it gets very cold, i.e. just above, to just below freezing, which isn't really acceptable
for a weather station.
The weather station, has worked perfectly since spring of this year, up and until a few weeks ago, when the weather got very
cold and we had a few nights of below freezing temps, which caused the windgauge & windchill point readings to stop showing on the
weather station, and on occasions all readings have stopped being displayed.
When it is working, the weather station is great, very accurate, and clear display on the indoor weather station, and the bluetooth
connection to the PC is very useful, it's just annoying that is does not like the cold.

My Irox weather station sometimes stops sending signals in cold weather. It`s because I don`t use the correct batteries. You should always use Lithium batteries during the winter months, but they are expensive compared to normal (AA) batteries.
