My VP2 Wireless anemometer recently stopped transmitting (partially). I still get wind direction, but w.s. reads 0. The cups are spinning freely, so there are no obvious external defects. Any suggestions?

**Sorry--posted this in the wrong section. Any way to move it?

My Davis Vantage Pro 2 lost battery power after sunset tonight . :cry:
I replaced both the CR 123 and the NiCad battery in the ISS about a year ago...and the batteries I installed originally lasted about 2 years. Are the batteries really dead after just 12 months, or might somthing else be going on? NiCads are rechargable, am I correct? Aren't these recharged by solar energy each day? Should I replace the 3V lithium batt. as well? Thanks! :wink:

Well...I set out to verify the accuracy of the automatic tipping bucket used by the VP 2 by setting up a standard 5 inch plastic tube gauge on the same tripod as the station (albeit about 20 inches away horizontally). I had to wait until today to check the plastic gauge as we hadn't seen any rainfall so far in 2007! In any case, the results are a little troubling. The VP recorded a three day total of exactly 4.6 inches, and the maunal gauge had between 5.75 and 6. That's an error rate of 20-23%, which is quite high by my reckoning. I am reluctant to recalibrate the VP gauge so such a significant degree. Does anyone else have this problem? :?

Noticed this AM that there was +- 1 hour of missing data on my VP 2 wireless console. The temperature outside was quite cold for these parts--29 degrees (yes, those of you who live in cold places can laugh all you want :wink: )--and conditions were pretty icy. Only the temperature and humidity sensors, and therefore the dewpoint, seemed to be affected. The dewpoint temperature went from 27 degrees before the outage to a clearly anomalous 1 degree during the outage and then back up to where it should have been afterwards (27), and the temp/hum readings were null ("----"). Is it possible that the sensors iced up, or is there something more sinister at work here? I've actually never had to deal with temperatures this cold in my 2 years owning this station in San Rafael, CA, so I don't know if this is something new or not. Thanks for any help!
