Thanks guys for you feedback, hopefully Marc will be able to provide a definitive answer. Hopefully I'll also have time to look into myself, really would like to get this working.

Thanks again
Nick

Guys,

After a bit of fiddling, I found that the following changes now allow me to reliably see that data from my Lacrosse Weather Station WS2355 using both an Arduino Uno ( genuine SMD Edition) and a Freetronics EtherTen using the V2 of the 433 Receiver shield.

The following changes were made to the WeatherStation.h file.

Update the following lines:
WSR_PERIOD_FILTER_MIN change from 300 to 240
WSR_LONG_PERIOD_MIN change from 1200 to 1000.

I have made these changes, compiled and upload the sketch to both the Arduinos and now I can receive the data.

Also, something more of interest is that I receive 2 transmissions( one after the other) of the data from the remote station.

Thanks pennyworth, I was just getting the powered up message until I made the changes you suggested :)

Just wanted to say a big thank you to pennyworth, I was tearing my hair out until i read your post. Sorted my issues out instantly :D Before making the change all i got was the power up message.

I'm using the techno-line WS2350 variant of the lacross weather station featured in the Practical Arduino book, an arduino uno v3 and v4 of the 433Mhz shield. I believe techno-line produce the version here in the uk.

One other thing on my 433Mhz shield the red and green leds don't seem to do a great deal. Not sure if something else needs changing as i now get the data feed ok. I have v4 and the green led is on all the time, the red one never comes on. When data is being received though i see an orange led from the uno itself blink away.

Hope this info helps others
