Weather station

Post by Gary M Jones on Thu Jan 05, 2012 9:13 pm

Rich, where is your windspeed sensor on the site station ? The speeds recorded seem a bit " sheltered" with the gusts we have been getting. I had a gust of 95mph here in LJ on Tuesday a.m. about 07:00. Wind took my wind vane off too so I can't tell which direction now ! Had one of 7 fence panels in the garden that were blown down fly about 90 ft ! Fortunately no damage to property. I may try one up the Orme now I know what they are capable of in gales ! Just need servos & Rx / batt. pack.

It sits 6 ft above the ridge of the house, maybe sheltered, the data only uploads every 5 mins so if there is a gust in between transmissions to the base unit it will miss it
