I have the WMR200 also. It looks impressive, mounted on the exterior of my shop, but that's about it. I have found that I cannot receive a signal at the display unit, which is inside the shop, a distance of less than 60' away.

BUT....my shop is metal sided inside and out. Cell phones won't work inside the building either, and my verizon wireless internet requires an external antennae to function...and I can see the cell tower line-of-sight, less than 1/2 mile away.

I've moved the transmitting station for the Oregon unit three times now, but no good...too much signal interference from the metal siding.


"Forget pounds and ounces, I'm figuring displacement!"

If we accept that: MBG(+)FGSF(=)HBG(F1)
And we surmise that: BG(>)HBG(F1) while GSF(<)HBG(F1)
Would it hold true that: HBG(F1)(+)AM500(x)q.d.(=)1.5lbGRWT?
PB answer: It depends.

Maybe you could set the weather station in a window and mount the sensors on a post (line of sight). Metal buildings are tough wirelessly speaking.

That's a pretty neat unit guy's.

I was reading on a weather geek forum where you can modify the rig and utilize a remote/external antenna.

Mount the antenna outside and run coax cable to the rig inside.

Fall is really in the water, now. Since I was gone for a couple weeks I extrapolated the numbers for the missing weekend.

Interesting ! With all depths the same temp but DOs different I wonder what can be extrapolated WRT DOs and their source (groundwater , plankton etc. )?

The similar top to bottom temps occur in the spring and the fall of the year. This fall I accidentally caught the one day that temps are exactly (within 100ths) the same top to bottom.

I believe the bottom DO difference is probably due to the lack of light at that level, though the other factors mentioned could play a part.

It is good to pump up the DO prior to water hardening. Hard water generally occurs in the first 10 days of December though it has occurred as early as November 27. The mean date for lasting ice is the 6th of December. These dates refer to the years I have been monitoring the pond.

Time to start thinking about ice fishing! Just thinking.


Good morning Dave, I've checked the ships systems, and everything appears to be running normally.

Stick, maybe your village will be able to get a decent size whale this year. That way you would not have to spend so much time setting on a blow hole trying to harpoon Dwight's cousin: Erignathus Barbatus.

Staring down an ice hole with a bloody mary and an ice cold Hamms back, is a pretty good time for me!

Stick, ice fishing may be something you learn to like but to me it looks like it was invented by frigid females to keep the men otherwise occupied. I could never drink brown liquor as it made me sick. I do have a friend that said every time he drank it, he woke up in a trailer park with a snotty nose kid looking down on him and saying " Daddy come back home".

The pond made a crossover move this week with dropping temperatures and rising DOs. Clarity didn't quite reach the crossover line. I expect that it will in a few days.

This is a "classic" heading into winter scenario.

We have clearing water, dropping temperatures top to bottom and rising D.O. top to bottom.

The pond is 75% ice covered and it was raining when I did my sampling this morning.

With both trolling motors running full tilt at ramming speed I was able to break through the ice enough to get to where I needed to be.

I had a whole agenda of things to do out there this morning, but didn't want to risk getting stranded with no more juice in the battery. I don't enjoy swimming in 40 degree water with ice blades slashing at me.

Updated in the Cold Rain.

You can really see the inverse relation between water temps and DO in the charts for the last few weeks.

We have walk-on-with-care ice and it only took 2 nights of near 0 F temperatures to make it.
