(updated 4-15-09)

Our weather station is configured to run on low power and operates on 12 VDC supplied by batteries being charged by an AC charging source.  The plan is to add solar power at some point in the future.  In the event of a power failure the system will see no power interruption.  An emergency 15KW generator is on line should the power interruption become long term.
Today the weather station in linked to a local repeater reporting the weather in the Canby, OR area.
