    This is on a house around here and there seems to be more going up there every now and then.
    I know its weather equipment, but I was hoping someone here could give me the details on the stuff there.
    thanks for any help.

    Not really sure but did a Google search for home weather stations and many of the remote units look similar depending on what system you go with and there seems to be many brands

    Weather station is my vote, that looks like a wind ananometer hanging off of it. I was going to buy a system once that had an outdoor collector, not quite that elaborate though.

    Yup looks like there are quite a few options on that one, I thought about getting one once but the Internet is quite accurate so I can't see spending the money for one

    Big brother is more than welcome to check up on me, just an average citizen nothing new to see heretaser1[lolol]

    I guess I was hoping that those with the antennas on the Pole were wireless repeaters and I could tap into the signal and use the information that his system was producing that way i didnt have to go through the whole cost either [dunno]

    I've had a little experience with these, it's a feebledooter attached to the mastiplator with an Eludium Q36 ES Modulator, and a couple of phased difflebassters to eliminate stray mufflewitter rays from the array and prevent somullisters from irritating the RF frequencies...

    [lolol]

    If you want accurate local info, check into MesoWest. It has a list of weather stations. Like that station pictured, it gives current and past conditions.

    the instrument at the top on the left is a wind direction and speed indicator the arrow indicates direction and the three cups on the bottom spin with wind speed, i have one on my sailboat. the information is displayed on an lcd display located remotely somewhere...could be solar powered or wired in.

    one looks like a solar cell for charging, the rest could be sensors for temp, humidity and barometric pressure.
