SayWeather™

The affordable AWOS Alternative for your Airport


How it works:

  1. SayWeather continuously retrieves weather information from the local (on the airfield) solar powered, wirelessly-connected weather station.
  2. In the plane, the pilot keys the radio mic four times, transmitting on the CTAF, to request the current weather advisory.
  3. SayWeather™ then speaks the current weather conditions over a con- nected aviation-band transceiver. (The advisory can be configured to the airport operator’s preference, as can the spoken voice - male, female, language, etc.).
  4. SayWeather™ publishes live weather to the web for viewing by pilots on the ground (through any web-connected phone, tablet or PC).

A SayWeather™ system includes everything the airport operator needs to quickly and easily implement automated weather advisories. Included:

  • A SayWeather™ console (or system enclosure for PRO+)
  • A solar-powered wireless remote monitoring weather station with desktop weather-display console, either:
    • Davis Vantage Vue with integrated sensor suite (with SayWeather Base system), or
    • Davis Vantage Pro2 with discretely mountable: a) wind sensors, and b) fan-aspirated humidity & temperature sensors, and rainfall sensor (with SayWeather Pro system)
  • A VHF air-band transceiver
  • External VHF radio antenna with J-pole and mounting hardware
  • 45 feet of RG-58 VHF cable
  • Universal power supply (110-240VAC, 50-60Hz)
  • microSD memory card with SD-adapter (for storing base unit configuration data)
  • Instruction manual
  • SayWeather™ may be ordered with options
