Mine is the Oregon Scientific WMR968
but I don't think they are very common anymore as it is about 5 years
old - they did a special offer at the time in Maplins and the software
to get the data out of it is at
http://azug.minpet.unibas.ch/~lukas/wmr918/ - the only trouble I had so
far with it is that I had to replace two of the sensors (rain and wind)
last year but they have been outside untouched for all that time. I also
wrote some scripts so I record the data in Cacti as well now.
I think when this thing finally dies I will move to the Davis Vantage
range as they are supposed to be better but also more expensive -
