Hi everyone --
I have a couple of questions -
I want to do this particular Arduino project -http://kjordahl.net/weather.html
which is based on this Practical Arduino project:http://www.practicalarduino.com/projects/weather-station-receiver
They are both the idea of "receive data from your La Crosse weather station"
My primary question is this -
Which Arduino is being used for that project?
I don't see mention of whether it's the Ardunio UNO,
or which Rev version of the UNO would be needed, or whether it
was done with the Arduino MEGA ??
I think those articles are a couple of years old, and I'm sure the Arduino has changed - at least in revision.
My other question is -
Can a single Arduino do two things at once?
I'd like to build out the weather station, but then also use the same Arduino
with a couple of dry contact inputs to determine whether each one of a pair of relays
is open or closed
(Ademco alarm system with a 4204 relay board)
I don't know whether I can expect an Arduino to measure weather data,
and scan some contacts to determine if they've closed or not -
In each case, I'd be sending all data outboard to a Linux server for interpretation.
Can anyone shed some light on the proper Arduino
to use for the weather project, and whether it could do two things at the same time?
