Wasn't sure where to post this, but since there was an item about being able to send data to WWL thought I would post here. I'm curious about the backyard weather monitoring and what is actually required to participate. Even the least expensive of the weather stations is not cheap, but it isn't clear what other requirements need to be met. Does the software come with the station? Does your computer need to be located in some way to receive the data, or is there additional hardware required? While the center of my backyard is open it is surrounded by trees and of course the house. Does that make the data less reliable?
