This self-contained marvel, which measures just 200 mm x 112 mm x 30 mm, connects to the serial port of an ULTIMETER weather station and to a phone line. It answers the phone and delivers an up to the second report on local weather conditions in one of three selectable levels of detail. WeatherVox is powered by an included 9 volt ac adapter and has a built-in backup battery.
WeatherVox can also be used with radio repeater stations. For this application it includes a PTT status line, an audio output line and an audio input line to accept DTMF commands.
WeatherVox is a product of the Australian firm, Sphere Communications. It is being marketed in the United States and Canada exclusively by Peet Bros. Company.
