The other feature I wanted is the ability to see at least the temperature on the remote sensor; not all of these devices have that feature, so I was looking for that specifically. According to the product description, "One remote sensor (TS13C) included." Amazon sells that sensor, and according to both Amazon.com and Meade's website, the TS13C has a little LCD on it with the temperature.
"Perfect!", I thought to myself, having looked at quite a few of these stations. (A large portion of them don't have indoor humidity.) Ordered, received...and discovered that the remote sensor HAS NO LCD. It's actually a TS21 sensor, which is what it's supposed to be according to the manual, so Amazon's product description was incorrect.
The base unit itself is pretty nice. There's no clutter, as mentioned above, just the temperature and humidity in huge text, the time, and a simple "comfort" reading in tiny enough text that I can barely notice it, which is great! The unit is a bit large, but the stated dimensions of 7" wide by 4.8" tall are accurate, so I expected this. Aesthetically, it looks pretty nice; sleek and modern without seeming cheap or tacky. A backlight would be nice too, especially at this price point; some of the cheaper stations do have one, but then again the text is huge so I can read it just fine unless it's extremely dark.Read more ›
The second big problem is that the time radio signal receiver is very weak. I have a basic (and inexpensive) "atomic clock" mechanism that I put into a clock when the original mechanism wore out, and it receives the time signal all over my house; but this Meade product only gets the signal in small areas around just 4 windows in my house -- it gets no signal in most of my (basic wood frame) house. I tested it next to my other "atomic clock" mechanism in many places, and it got no signal almost everywhere, although my other one did. Indeed, I have it now where I can see it, but it is not in a practical place and it still does not get the WWV time signal -- I just set the clock by hand, and hope the thing keeps pretty good time on its own until the battery runs down. So far, it has kept pretty good time without the WWV signal.Read more ›

Tried a number of other remote temp gauges and Meade is the best. Good reception and one isn't always replacing batteries.Published 12 days ago by Greg J.
Excellent. The best weather and WWVB clock system. Much better design than La Crosse or Oregon Scientific.Published 2 months ago by Koichiro Hori
I haven't even had this item for a year and the outside temp/humidity no longer works. The humidity just stopped showing anything one day, not even dashes on the display. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Brenna Halpin
Works well. Loss of signal with outside transmitter occasionally. I have to move the unit closer to the transmitter in order to reestablish a connection. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Peter
I really like this little weather station. The only thing that I wish I had the option for was the default on the temperature read out placement. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Christine Perry
