February 2, 2007, Newsletter Issue #49: Cabling a Digital Weather Station

Tip of the Week

You have miles of fiber-optic cable and no place to use it. You're definitely a collector of home improvement stock. What better way to clean out that basement or junk shed than by creating a home made weather station?

It's not entirely home made, of course. You have digital sensors and monitors you bought secondhand.

News Flash: Always make sure when setting up a weather station that your components are the same brand, or that they're compatible. If not, spend some extra cash and buy workable components.

All you need now is to cable the whole setup together, because you aren't an expert in wireless technology.

When you install that fiber-optic twisted-pair cable, be sure that your connectors fit the outside sensors and the indoor home unit. Also, if the cable has lain neglected in your shed or basement, check for fraying or damage.

Now that you've finished building your home made weather station, perhaps you can do something with your collection of one hundred spark plugs.
