Welcome to the forum and network Mike.  :D
I also used to read the manual stuff for the 3 hourly met obs from the Coastguard station in Greenock, them were the days! Going onto the roof in the snow to check wet bulb still had water in it and slipping on my backside!!  ;D

I even did the Auxillary Observers course at Reading, I've never eaten so well in my life! We did learn a lot about the taking obs into the bargin.  ;)

Name of Mike, and been in to weather as a professional an amateur for , well lets say a number of decades. Currently based on the NE coast of Morecambe Bay. records from here go back to 1992.
Perhaps I am a bit odd but I am trying to create a full manual station like the one I used to work in. So lots of chart paper and large anemometers here. I run this alongside an Oregon 928 (with adaptations), and one I am creating ,myself with the use of Labjack. Also being odd I use Macs, so my weather software is mac based, i.e. Weather Cat. I also run Weather Display through Fusion, so out of the four sets of data available I can at least guarantee that one will give me all I need to enter manually into a database.
In addition I am currently working with a chap called Jari to get a lightning detector system going, to add to my 1 - wire counter.
Short introduction, hope its enough.

Best wishes

Thanks Steve and welcome to the forum.

Your station went live on the map this evening and the data is now flowing.  ;D

Hi Martin and all others who read this.
I am Steve and I live in Cirencester in Gloucestershire.
I've been running and building up my little project  - for the past few months and am absolutely loving it, despite the numerous very late nights just trying to do the simplest thing with scripts.

I have been running Weather Display software, feeding the Wunderground and Weatherbug network for the past 5 years, but only got to starting a website 6 months ago.

On other forums I have heaped praise on those who created and developed the software and scripts without which I would not have a website, but if I did, it would be about tennis or something far less interesting.

Thanks for setting this up Martin and I look forward to lots of ideas and information sharing with other members as the come on board.
Best regards

Hi I'm Chris.  I live in the Carse of Gowrie, between Dundee and Perth in Scotland.  My weather station has been running for around ten years through various incarnations.
I am also a member of the Scottish Weather Network.
Many thanks to Martin and Ken for getting UKWX up and running.

As the Site Admin I thought I'd better introduce myself.

Some of you will know me from other weather related forums but if you don't then not to worry.
I have been building & running websites for about 12 years and currently run and, as well as a couple of others. I'm also the Webmaster for the Tornado and Storm Research Organisation (TORRO).

I started into all things weather as an Auxillary Met Observer for the Met Office and it sort of grew from there.
I live in the Western Isles (Outer Hebrides) so we see some interesting weather up here, along with other things like the Aurora from time to time.

I think that's enough from me for now, so over to you.  ;)

Welcome to the support forum for the UK Weather Net.

UK Weather Net was set up to act as a "hub" for Personal Weather Stations within the UK to advertise their websites and increase the Search Engine Profile of their websites by each member using the UKWN map on their own website, thereby linking to all the other sites on the map.

You need to have a weather station that uploads data to a personal website, we cannot take data from the links of Wunderground.
Simply fill in the application form on the main website and we will do the rest.

Note: As I work shifts it may take up to 48 hours for your application to be processed and your station to appear on the map.  ;)
