Nice and clean looking install.  Love the antenna.  What is your height on the temp sensor?

Nice setup!   

It seems about as ideal as you can get to me.  I would love to get to 30' on all my anemometer.  I have the Davis VP2 and Vue's up on my patio roof on an 15' foot pole at about 24/25' respectively buy my Acurite's only at about 16'. 

I'd love to get that up with Davis's so could you kindly tell me where you get the super cool bolt-on antenna your Acurite is mounted on?   That looks like it would allow me to get the Acurite up w/the Davis with that side mount setup..

I can't say I've ever see one like that, pretty unique looking, plus it appears to fit seamlessly into the Acurite mount hole which 1 1/4' poles don't since it's 3/4 so that in itself is cool.  Be Googling next to see if i can find it...
