About The Station

Ten Mile, TN (Zip  Code designation)/Euchee, TN (actual community) is located about half way between Chattanooga, TN and Knoxville, TN.  It's about 5 miles north of Watts Bar Dam on Watts Bar Lake's eastern shore in Meigs County.  The station is located between Euchee Boat Dock/Marina and Hornsby Hollow Campground.


Davis VP-2 Weather Station

Davis VP2

 


I've operated a weather station since 2007.  I started out with the Oregon Scientific WMR968.  The THGR968 humidity sensor went bad so I bought a LaCrosse WS-2315 as a replacement.  Later, I got a THGR122N, which is a solid state temp/rh sensor for the WMR968 that works much better.  I have added a Davis VP2 station on 6/2/10.
 
As of November 2013, the WMR968 and WS-2315 have been sold and are no longer transmitting weather data from Ten Mile, TN.
 
The The picture below was taken right after initial installation.  The 6-foot stepladder gives it a sense of scale.  The mast is 30 feet high.  More detailed station information and station constructions photos can be seen here.
 
 

This is a picture of the dedicated weather computer uploading the data every five seconds to CWOP, WeatherUnderground, and WeatherForYou/PWS.  WUHU software (It is great software.  I highly recommend it!) is what I use to upload the data.  That poor old computer is nearly 13 years old now (that's 130 years old in computer years!) and still chugging along.  All we have access to here in Ten Mile, TN is dialup internet (26.4kbs), so uploading and downloading  is a challenge.
