OneWorld going south

Loaded a fresh battery into the OneWorld weather station. It beeped awake. Programmed the date and time and current weather.

Noticed the barometer reading was low. Way low. A couple of years ago, I had determined it did not register correctly so I did a few days testing and found it to be on average 42 millibars too low. Looks like I'll have to do that again...

The barometric "refinement" allows one to add or subtract 15 units...

Oh. The altitude. Looked up the average elevation for the new digs and set the portable weather station to 264 metres. Of course, it changes this automatically, with no apparent rhyme or reason.

Humidity reads 10 units off, as well. On the low side.

Seems the OneWorld becomes increasing unreliable over time. It's turning into a glorified clock. That's a pity, as it has a nice astronomer-friendly display.

The Oregon Scientific keeps on trucking.


After a couple weeks testing, I've determined the barometric reading is low by 110 units on average.
