ALL Features
The Vantage Pro2 (# 6152, 6153) and Vantage Pro2� Plus (# 6162, 6163) Wireless Weather Stations include two components: the Integrated Sensor Suite (ISS) which houses and manages the external sensor array, and the console which provides the user interface, data display, A/D conversion in the ISS, and calculations.

The ISS and Vantage Pro2 console communicate via an FCC-certified, license-free frequency hopping transmitter and receiver. Userselectable transmitter ID codes allow up to eight stations to coexist in the same geographic area. The frequency hopping spread spectrum technology provides greater communication strength over longer distances and areas of weaker reception.

The Wireless Vantage Pro2� Plus weather station includes two additional sensors that are optional on the Vantage Pro2: the UV Sensor and the Solar Radiation Sensor.

The console may be powered by batteries or by the included AC-power adapter. The wireless ISS is solar powered with a battery backup.

Use WeatherLink� for Vantage Pro and Vantage Pro2 to let your weather station interface with a computer, to log weather data, and to upload weather information to the internet.

The 6152 and 6162 rely on passive shielding to reduce solar-radiation induced temperature errors in the outside temperature sensor readings. The Fan-aspirated 6153 and 6163 combine passive shielding with a solar-powered fan that draws outside air in over the temperature and humidity sensors, providing a much more accurate temperature reading than that available using passive shielding alone.

Davis Weather Station February 22, 2008
Reviewer: Happy Retiree from Las Vegas, NV  
I have had a number of weather stations in my life but this one beats them all. I got it yesterday and had it set up in a couple of hours. It replaced a wired LaCrosse which cost me $87 bucks. Well, you get what you pay for. Amazingly, it predicted a 24-hour forecast which included light precipitation, a wind shift, all of which happened. It even measured the .01 inch of sprinkles which fell today. Most stations won't give you that kind of detail, they either measure .02 or more likely .04 before they even record rain. I got the 6153 model which includes a solar powered asperation fan. As soon as I took it outside it started humming without me doing anything. If you read the fine print, a non asperated housing can cause a variance of 6 degrees at high noon. The 6153 model varies only by .6 of a degree. Since my station is in the baking sun of Las Vegas, I need a continual air flow to get an accurate summer reading. The backlight is fine for a bedroom, you can leave it on and it won't light up the room. Take it from one who has been buying and constructing weather stations for 30 years (remember Heathkit?), this is by far the best and the price is not high considering what you get. The only shortcoming is the absence of of good mounting hardware. I mounted my wind vane away from the main unit, you don't need their $30 mounting pole, just hit Home Depot for a 5' metal pole and some U-bolts. I may consider an extra console and a data logger, be advised the console is much bigger than it appears in the pictures. The instructions are excellent and, guess what, it is made in California, not China, as are most of the other weather stations. This one has it all. Go for it.
