finally bitten the bullet and ordered one of the wireless pro2 plus with solar and uv sensor after my current setup has packed in.

Only thing i realised was i need the solar and uv sensor at the same height as anemomter which will be 25 feet,

therefore i think i need the additional 4 core extension cable?

Anyone know how easy this is to do?

Paul - i think you have a vp2 plus dont you?

Could you tell me whether the UV sensor and Solar radiation sensor are two completely separate sensors or are they both recorded from the same sensor unit?

If they are completely separate then i should be able to move the SR Sensor into a different location (using extension cable) whilst leaving the uv sensor on the main unit?

I bought the solar sensor as an add on to my Vanatge pro, so I think they are seperate units.

SR unit is just connected next to my raingauge (on the sunny side!)
