KCW Rest Bay Weather Station

I would expect you to be replacing the cups every two years and temp sensor yearly . Malc’s was horrific for salt ingress . The lifeguards will be worse .

To run data for WS realtime 2G is more than ample. Have a look at a roaming SIM , cant remember the name at the mo but will join any uk network. For example the station at remos does 5 second updates; My stats tell me its been up for 1 year sine last reboot and has transmitted 3.5G data. Thats sendi...
