About the Author:

Tim Bitson as been building weather measurement equipment for 30 years, and has been active in the 1-Wire weather community since it started in the late 1990s. He has designed two of the commonly used 1-Wire weather sensors, the “Bitson” barometer and the 1-Wire lightning detector. He has developed weather station code for Basic Stamp, PalmOS, and Tiny InterNet Interface (TINI), just to name a few.
During the day, Tim works as a “rocket scientist” at a major aerospace firm in southern Arizona, which he has been doing for more than 25 years. His specialty is integrating new designs and getting them to work for the first time.
During the evenings and weekends, he enjoys working with electronics, writing software, building neon art, and riding ATVs in the desert. Tim lives with his wife Pam, two sons Kyle and Andrew, one dog, and two cats (at last count).
Tim holds a B.S. degree in Information Technology, and has been programming since the late 1970s.
