Weather Picture - Good Display  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I elected to operate my system from my station 12VDC supply and fuse panel. The Weather Picture receives power from the 6-wire cable and RJ-11 connector. No power supply is needed at the location of The Weather Picture and simplifies installation. Wall wart supplies are provided. A smaller capacity for operation of the 2100 and a larger one to replace the smaller unit if The Weather Picture is used. If you intend to install The Weather Picture more than 10 feet from the 2100 an extension cable will have to be provided. Peet sells on or it looks like it would be easy enough to build on, watching for proper wiring at the connectors.

The numbers are easily seen from across a lit room. The compass indicators are bright LEDs.

The face is very shinny and does reflect room lights or light from the window across the room. This does not cause a problem view the data.

I really like this display.

Ultimeter 100 & Weather Picture  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Weather station purchased consists of:
Ultimeter 100
Pro rain gauge
Solar shield for temp gauge
Weather picture with 7 modules

Positives
The sensors all work well and are accurate.

The wiring and setup is straight forward.

The 100 model with the weather picture accessory is a very complete setup for a ham station, its easy to read from across the room.

I had one display on the "weather picture" that was erratic but a replacement was sent immediately and service was good.

The setup for the controls allows you to configure the display to meet your needs (e.g. I have temp displayed in F on one display and in C on another)

Negatives
The manual for the weather picture is out of date and does not match the new PC board.
