I have had my station for about a month and have had the raincheck feature on. With a small and unscientific sample size I’d say the raw tempest readings are underdone somewhat. Not terrible. I have a COCORAHS gage about a 100 yards away. Not a perfect comparison in the convective season, but close enough to see a difference.
I have some bird issues for my rain and appreciate the raincheck feature to null these out. I have my bird deterrent ready to install (got it yesterday). However, I had some heavy rain three days ago (1.38 inches. Rain gauge 1.63. The raincheck changed it to well over 3 inches. There is no way that occurred. Just turned the raincheck feature off for now.
A feature I’d like to see, and maybe there is already, is to be able to apply raincheck to certain days or hours. When I put the bird deterrent on today, I will likely have a false rain. Is there an easy way to manually null this out?
