Hi Everyone,

http://www.columbiaweather.com/Orion420.html

This is the newest product from Colombia Weather Systems.
They integrate an OEM / military grade weather sensor into their weather server.
They measure wind speed and direction using ultrasonic sound and Doppler information.
Now they have added a drum type sensor that counts rain drops as they fall onto the unit.

Given the last round of rain rate calibration discussions, I thought many of you would all find this new device interesting.

Best,

Rich
