I've have had my WS-2800 a little over a week now and so far it seems to be working nicely, without any major hiccups.
I was just wondering about the wind gust reading I'm getting, as they seem to fluctuate quite a bit.
The manual does not say anything how the wind gust is calculated. The Heavy weather manual has a little more info, but doesn't seem consistent with what I'm seeing.
Heavy weather manual states:
"In the lower section, the Gust value displays the highest wind speed recorded in the past 20 minutes."
I thought this sounded right for what I was seeing, until yesterday when it was really gusty. The reading fluctuates up and down constantly in a period of 1-2 minutes. To my understanding it should not constantly go up and down, only stay the same or go higher UNTIL a set time period (20 minutes?) has passed when it give a new gust reading for that time period.
As I see it I, can't really get any useful info from it, if the gust reading keeps "resetting" every minute.
Would greatly appreciate it if someone explained this to me or do I just have a defective unit.
