    • Yes it can! I’m using an Acurite bucket myself. I connected two wires to the reed contact inside the Acurite bucket and brought it out of the housing and to the input of the station. Whenever the tipping mechanism flips it causes the switch to close momentarily which crates a pulse on the wires. The wire goes a couples of feet from the bucket to my weather station post out in the yard. The original wireless signaling to the Acutite LCD display still works as well. The station software has a calibration feature where you can set the number of counts per inch. Usually they are calibrated at 100 counts per inch, but my unit initially was a bit off at around 145 counts per inch.
