Most weather stations quote a maximum range of around 100 meters (line of sight) between a sensor a console/base station - Davis Instruments devices are stronger and send up to 300m. In real life conditions, we have walls, trees, rooves and other obstructions and this can reduce the range a signal can be reliably received. We usually suggest a real world range of about a third of maximum range.
The following is a table of reception loss vs. the transmission medium. Each “wall” or obstruction decreases the transmission range by the factor shown below.
|Medium||RF Signal Strength Reduction|
Normally, you can adjust positions of sensors an receivers to optimise sour signal strength - something a simple as moving a console near to a window or nearer to line of sight.
