I put the following in StdCalibrate:
 
rain = rain * 0.93
 
My new tipping spoon from Davis is a bit too generous with the tips. It seems to work in some places, but not others. Strange, right?
 
So the gauge measured 0.54 today. That was correctly reduced to 0.50 in the standard/seasons skin. In Belchertown, it did correctly show .50 for the days total and in the monthly climate report, but it shows 0.54 where the current conditions are shown. It looks like 0.54 may be coming from mqtt, because it loads as 0.50 then updates to 0.54 a second later.
 
But when the data is sent to say Wunderground and PWSWeather, it shows the 0.54, not the corrected value of 0.50.
 
I'm probably missing something somewhere in the weewx.conf file.  Any ideas?

The Vantage stations emit 'dayRain' as well --- the total rain since midnight. This may be what Belchertown, MQTT, etc. are using.

Ah.  Thanks. I'll give that a try!

Hey Tom,
 
Just wanted to thank you again. We've had a couple more rain events and all the rain amounts match now.
