It seems to be working well, but as expected, I think the humidity and dew point readings are off, not by a lot though. Mines reading +5 dew point right now and 42% humidity. EC's station is reading +7.8 dew point and 51% humidity. Obviously EC's station is a poor comparison, though I was surprised to see how close they are. Whats the best way to test accuracy on these things, especially since comparing isn't always accurate due to microclimates?
I think if there was an easy way to test accuracy on them, they would just make them more accurate to begin with. Place it in the best location you have and hope for the best.
Yup and best to just assume a personal weather station, especially the cheaper ones, are close but they aren't going to perfectly accurate, so best to just have fun and don't expect perfection in less then ideal conditions.
