how do you think the trees will affect the data from the anemometer?
I live in the woods and my units are wireless. So I have to find a clear place that's kind of close. I expect the wind to be a blocked somewhat. However, the topography (I live in a valley) of the area kind of blocks and (I think) directs the wind as well. But my wife likes trees. So..........
I have a WMR968 and a WS-2315. I decided that since I was putting up a tall pole, I might as well put both on there (because I don't have any more tall poles or a place to put another one). The main reason for moving my equipment was that I read all the stuff about lightning and decided that I had one big lightning rod attached to my house (plus the fact that I'm going to build a garage on that end of the house).
A bonus of the present location is that it's about 4 feet higher than the previous location. A minus of the present location is that the previous location was in the shade 90% of the day, and the present location will be in the sun a lot. Maybe the next project will be solar aspirators.
Oh, another thing I noticed yesterday was that the cover for the 2315 doesn't really allow for air flow. I've noticed over the past year that the values seem slower to change than the 968. I expect that to improve when I get another radiation shield for the temp/RH sensor and remove the factory cover.
Another thing II: I'm going to plant some grass seed around the post today (I hope). I noticed that the setting guide recommends grass (the red clay is reflective, I think). I guess I will go into the woods and get some topsoil.
Anyways, that's the latest from Euchee, TN.
