This is a really nice post and great looking install.

Dumb question, but did you set the post in concrete?

Yes I did. And that's not a dumb question!

I have changed things up a bit since my original post. I no longer have a WH32 sensor inside an Ambient Weather SRS100LX solar radiation shield for temperature/humidity mounted on my backyard post. Instead, I have a WH32-EP probe in a MeteoShield Professional radiation shield and the electronics box inside a waterproof Bud Industries NBF-32404 enclosure. I also have a WH41 PM2.5 sensor mounted on the post and a Stratus rain gauge mounted on the post for CoCoRaHS.









congratulations excellent installation, I also have 2 meteoshield pro with wh31 / 32EP inside, just a tip if I can, the wh probe must be higher, in the center of the screen, you will recover 0.2 tenths of the temperature value  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

What did you use to raise it up? I tried but I was too picky with my fittings and nothing looked good (even though you can't see it).

I used a piece of carbon fishing rod, but you can use a piece of white color pvc pipe from the diameter of the probe base, just a 10 cm piece, you cut it on one side along its entire length to make pass the probe wire and insert the probe on top with the help of insulating tape,

Wow, I really like how you installed all your sensors.  I just picked up a WH41 and was concerned about how to mount it so that it gets enough sun but not too much rain (although it doesn't rain here much at all).  So I'm tempted to mount mine in a similar fashion to how yours is installed. Thanks for sharing the pictures of your setup!

What radiation shield would you recommend me for wh32_ep now in 2022? Not very expensive.

That's a nice, big passive shield too. If you were feeling frisky, you could probably stick a fan it in if you wanted.
I have thought about it. We haven't had any hot sunny weather yet but I'm curious how well it will do as a passive shield.
Just curious how that SRS100LX shield worked fo you?
