La Crosse Weather Station WS-9016U

WS-9016U consists of Indoor Weather Station(WS-9016U) and Remote Temperature Sensor(TX6U)
Acording to WS-9016U & TX6U manual,
  • Power up remote sensor first, then, power up base station
  • Range of 80 feet

WS-9016U Indoor Weather Station,

  • can have up to 3 remote sensors

TX6U Remote Temperature Sensor,

  • transmits temperature every 1 minute
