Ecowitt WH32, WH40, and WS68 Install

K7RMK:
After wanting a weather station for years but not really wanting an all-in-one unit or being able to justify the cost of a VP2, I happened to browse this forum last week to see if there was anything new I didn't know about and I saw all the talk about the Ecowitt GW1000. I was instantly intrigued so I ordered up the GW1000 gateway, WH32 outdoor temperature/humidity sensor, WH40 rain gauge, and WS68 anemometer.

I installed the anemometer using a gable mount and an EMT pipe from Home Depot. The wind cups on the anemometer measure 32' 9.75" (10 meters) off the ground.





In my backyard, I threw a 4x4 post in the ground about 5' from the side fence and used a short piece of EMT pipe to mount the rain gauge to the post about 6' off the ground. I have the temperature/humidity sensor inside an Ambient Weather SRS100LX solar radiation shield mounted on the side of the post.

Looks really good! I'm guessing the photo of the post is a little tilted, and the rain gauge is level, given the attention you have shown to other details.

Correct, and the yard in the background is sloped.

And the pole is grounded?
