lace units away from large metallic items, thick walls, metal surfaces, or other
P
objects that may limit wireless communication.
PREVENT WIRELESS INTERFERENCE
lace both units at least 3 feet (.9 m) away from electronic devices (TV,
P
computer, microwave, radio, etc.).
Using the Professional Weather Center
Learning Mode
Self-Calibrating Forecasting use a unique algorithm to analyze changes in
