Localisation version details:UK (United Kingdom): Data is reported in Metric units. For products that use wireless radio data transmission, UK version uses approved UK radio frequency 868 MHz. The rain collector is calibrated to 0.2mm. Units shipped with an electrical power supply will have a UK power adapter.
I purchased one in February 2020, currently running very smoothly unlike my previous station from Technoline. I would personally recommend this one for any budding meteorologist seeking for the most reliable accuracy at an affordable price.
