Any heat from the pole would be negligible. 

The radiation shield will protect it from any radiated heat (which is far less than that of the sun). 

Even the slightest breeze would provide adequate mixing of any air heated by convection.  And if perfectly still, the convection would cause any heated air to rise.

And remember, air is a very poor conductor of heat.  So the ability of that pole to transfer any real amount of heat to the air is minimal.

Davis Instruments Weather Stations / Vantage Pro 2?
« Last post by wrz0170 on Yesterday at 10:18:36 PM »
Hello!  After I posted here, I did a bit of reading and it appears that Vantage Pro 2 might do the trick.  Astrophotography and having fun with it.  I.e. uploading to WunderStation app or something similar.

With that said, I’m very new to the PWS hobby and recommendations on “must have” extras  and nice to have.  There appears to be a number of add ons, so basically where to start.

To recap, I live in a very sunny area.  Little shade.  Very windy at times (Reno, Nv). 

Thanks in advance for the assistance!

Great!  :grin: Thank you..

I lost track of where I found it because it's been a few years since I've needed to edit that part, but I did end up saving the HTML Code...

Just change the couple places where it says KMELEEDS7 to your Weather Underground Station ID and you should be good to go. And if you want metric and English values displayed, just change the two places where it says "english" to either "metric" for just metric, or "both" for both english and metric values.

The ISS will be about 6 feet high and the anemometer about 10 feet high. 

OK, so it's where you want to measure the weather parameters at your house.  That's good.

..... I'm thinking a small hole, big enough for a grommet at the entry point up top and exit lower, should suffice.  Will snap a few shots and post when it's all set-up.

Please let us know what size hole is required, and pictures will be good.

Question for you;  Where did you find the rapid fire widget you have on your website.  Cant seem to locate mine on the WU weather station.  I know I've seen it before but I cant seem to locate it.
