Hacking home weather station transmitter

Recently I've found this piece of electronic on the dumpster, it was looking interesting - compact case with battery holder, LCD display, temperature and humidity sensor. It has also radio transmitter, but I'm not interested in it since I don't have the receiver station. I decided to bring it back to life. It seems that was previously immersed in water - whole PCB was covered in white stains, in addition ra ...
