About Southeastern Kentucky  Weather Station
My first weather station was established in Western North Carolina in February of 2007, primarily due to the lack of local weather information, our rural area has no media serving this area.  In March of 2017, a hardware failure, ended transmissions from the station.  During 2017, we made a decision to move on to Kentucky, on a more level piece of ground.

Southeastern Kentucky Weather Station was re-established in August of 2017. SoutheasternKentuckyWeather.com equipment is powered by a Davis Instruments Wireless Vantage Pro2, with 24-Hour Fan Aspirated Radiation Shield weather station. The data is collected every 2 seconds and the site is updated every 15 minutes. The station is comprised of an anemometer, a rain gauge, UV, Sun strength and a thermo-hydro sensor situated in optimal positions for highest accuracy possible.

Equipment overview:
 
First and only weather station in its class to use frequency hopping spread spectrum radio technology to transmit weather data wirelessly up to 1000' (300 m). Includes Vantage Pro2 console/receiver, integrated sensor suite (ISS), and mounting hardware. ISS includes rain collector, temperature and humidity sensors, anemometer, 40' (12 m) anemometer cable, solar radiation sensor, UV sensor, sensor mounting shelf, and solar panel. Temperature and humidity sensors are enclosed in our patented, solar-powered, 24-hour fan-aspirated radiation shield. Shield combines fan aspiration and passive shielding to minimize the effects of solar radiation. ISS is solar powered. Electronic components are housed in a weather-resistant shelter. Console may be powered using the included AC-power adapter or with three C batteries. Wireless range is up to 1000' (300 m) outdoors, line of sight. Typical range through walls under most conditions is 200' to 400' (60 to 120 m). Add wireless repeaters for distances up to 1.7 miles (2.7 km).
