change diameter on reian gauge top ?
« on: April 19, 2019, 08:54:47 PM »
The top of my weather station's rain gauge is not quite large in diameter.
If I double the area on the rain gauge top, I can then change the Weather display so that the measurements in future will be part with 2?

The image shows double the diameter, which means 4 times the area. Each tip will be a quarter of the original.

Yes, in Control Panel/Offsets & Initial Rain/Rain Offset/Modified rain gauge new tip. . .

I agree, that does look more like it would be 4 x Area, 0.25 x tip size.

Setting is also on Control Panel, Units and Other Settings, Rainfall Setup  :)
