Hello and welcome to my Blog, my name is Chris, a bus driver for First Mendip based in Wells, Somerset. Married to Fiona, we live in Midsomer Norton near Bath, with Boots the cat. My main hobby is Amateur Radio and I hold the call sign G4KVI. I am the repeater keeper for GB3UB and MB7UB. I have a fascination for the weather and all things to do with nature and science. I am a biker and currently ride a Honda CBfF600. As a Christian I worship, when shifts allow at St. Nicholas Church in Radstock. These are my observations on my life, both at work and at home.

New weather station

Well, the New weather station turned up. Very good as it connects directly to the internet so is easy to upload to Weather Underground. Unfortunately,this means I can no longer upload to my website or to APRS. Once the weather improves I will find a permanent home for it. I will continue to investigate how I can use the data again.

Weather station

Unfortunately my weather station that has served me well for many years has finally bitten the dust. The cost of replacing the transmitter is not viable. I have found a rather nice Black Friday deal. This seems rather too good to be true. We will see if it arrives on Tuesday.
