"If you're running in the other lane, I'd prefer you get your weather off of the end of your finger .... but if you want to know what you are going to run before the lights come down on the tree, I'd suggest you have an Altalab in the trailer."
Jeff White, Crew Chief
NHRA Top Dragster

At our discretion we will repair or replace any weatherstation or component that does not function as it should.

Calibrations are free for the original owner forever. During the 3 year warranty a complete checkup is also performed for no charge except shipping.
Clock Battery Replacement should be done every 5 years. Cost is $55 plus shipping, or free if included in a complete checkup ($150). Batteries older than 12 years may leak.
After the warranty, and for racers who purchased a used weatherstation, a complete checkup and service is $150 plus shipping, and includes battery replacement.
Non-warranty repairs are $90 per hour plus parts and shipping.
If you are considering purchasing a secondhand weatherstation we recommend sending it in for a complete checkup. We can advise you on any repairs needed or upgrades available. Many of our weatherstations are in excellent working order 13 or more years after original purchase.
