I don't know whether it was in this group, or another, that someone asked
about a solar-powered remote temperature sensor.

I just purchased a Weather Channel "Wireless Temperature Station" from La
Crosse. The main unit is your usual atomic clock with an LCD display. A
remote temperature sensor is included, powered by a battery recharged by a
solar panel.

The unit came from Mac Mall, and cost all of $16. (I'm currently a member of some shopping club and got two-day FedEx shipping for free.) I don't know how good it is, but you might want to look at it.

When you say "remote" I'm sure for 16.00 it isn't wireless but then is
it just a digital thermometer with an extended wire probe? We used to
make poor mans probes up in the lab for the digital meters as we
needed them by taking one chromel and one alumel wire, and twisting
the ends together. Lenny

MAJOR ERROR on Lacrosse's part. Though labeled as an atomic clock on their
Website, it is not. You have to set everything by hand. Amazing for a
product with a $45 list price. The unit came from Mac Mall, and cost all of$16.

If you look at what I wrote, you'll see "wireless" in the description. If it
used a wire probe, there would be no point to a "remote temperature sensor

I'll be calling LaCrosse this morning and taking their figurative ears off
about selling a product that looks like an atomic clock -- and is billed as
one on their Website -- but isn't.
