ALL Features
The Vantage Pro2 (# 6152, 6153) and Vantage Pro2 Plus (# 6162, 6163) Wireless Weather Stations include two components: the Integrated Sensor Suite (ISS) which houses and manages the external sensor array, and the console which provides the user interface, data display, A/D conversion in the ISS, and calculations.

The ISS and Vantage Pro2 console communicate via an FCC-certified, license-free frequency hopping transmitter and receiver. Userselectable transmitter ID codes allow up to eight stations to coexist in the same geographic area. The frequency hopping spread spectrum technology provides greater communication strength over longer distances and areas of weaker reception.

The Wireless Vantage Pro2 Plus weather station includes two additional sensors that are optional on the Vantage Pro2: the UV Sensor and the Solar Radiation Sensor.

The console may be powered by batteries or by the included AC-power adapter. The wireless ISS is solar powered with a battery backup.

Use WeatherLink for Vantage Pro and Vantage Pro2 to let your weather station interface with a computer, to log weather data, and to upload weather information to the internet.

The 6152 and 6162 rely on passive shielding to reduce solar-radiation induced temperature errors in the outside temperature sensor readings. The Fan-aspirated 6153 and 6163 combine passive shielding with a solar-powered fan that draws outside air in over the temperature and humidity sensors, providing a much more accurate temperature reading than that available using passive shielding alone.

5 of 5 The gold standard March 21, 2019
Reviewer: Derek from Wittmann, AZ United States  
I bought the Vantage Pro2 Plus Wireless from out of AZ (super nice and down to earth people btw).  Unit was packed very secure with marginal assembly.  I opted for the unit with temperature fan since in AZ it gets toasty with stagnate air which can give higher than static readings (verified this already).  I went with the WeatherlinkIP adapter which is plug and play, no need to install PC software.   I am already sending data to WeatherUnderground and CWOP/APRS.  

I mounted the ISS (the main instrument) to my ham radio mast at 5’ and got the anemometer at 36’ since I wanted (clean) air.  The Davis Instruments is incredibly accurate!  The weather prediction modeling both on the console and WeatherLink are accurate.  Do your research on WX forums and Davis Instruments is little bit more pricey per unit, however they stand behind their instruments.  I am too frugal to buy something more than once, just buy the best the first time.

5 of 5 The Ultimate Weather Station August 12, 2011
Reviewer: Neil HARRIS from Kanahooka, N.S.W. Australia  
The station is mounted on private house and has "annometer" mounted on mast separate to Sensor Suite. Provide excellent "data" graphs/highs/lows/forecasts/wind speed/direction. HAS VERY USEFUL GRAPHING FEATURE. This plots collected "data" on varying time frames ranging from 10-15 minute intervals/1 hours/days/months/years. Without the use of Computer. However purchased "weatherlink" program for computer downloads of data and printing out the same. Set up is "relatively" simple if "instruction" manual read thoroughly. I took my time and read it a couple of times and was able to set it up for "Australia" without any difficulty. However once programmed it is "set and forget". Going through "data" graphs and various "screens" at first seems  "daunting" however "watch screen" and see what changes, ie 15 mins/hours/days/months/years and you soon get the hung of it......This station is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.  The "annometer and Integrated Sensor Suite" worked straight away.
