My La Crosse Technology S84060 Install Pics
« on: May 17, 2019, 01:16:59 AM »
These are some before pics. I have been renting and living in the entire upstairs to this building for the last 5.5 years now. Building changed owners about 2.5 yrs ago. The previous owner ran a construction business and his office was located on the first floor. He left behind a 2" diameter, mounted galvanized steel pole which I estimate was about 10-11' long...topped with what I am thinking was a CB antenna. Look for it just above the peak of the roof in these two pics. Last pic with the steel pole and antenna removed.

I mounted the multi sensor unit (wind anemometer, wind vane, and rainfall collector) first on a cut block of pressure treated lumber. Drilled holes through this block to attach it to the 10' x 1" two piece galvanized steel pole with two stainless steel U bolts. I then adjusted the provided plastic post mount so I could mount it to the cut wood block with the included wood screws. Very sturdy mount when I completed this! See pics.

I utilized the large U bolt that was used to tie the old 2" diameter galvanized steel pipe to the side of the roof. I still need to sturdy up the very bottom of my 10' x 1" galvanized steel pole some...but it isn't going anywhere  ;)  As best as I can determine, by taking the most accurate measurements I could, the anemometer sits at 29' above ground level (+/- a few inches) \:D/  And close to 3' above the peak of the metal roof and just off to the side. No worries about faulty outdoor temperature readings radiating from the roof because those come from the separate humidity/temperature sensor unit I have mounted elsewhere outside.

Thanks for posting. It's always fun seeing other peoples installations.

The old antenna looks too small to be CB, maybe a vhf or uhf ham antenna or something commercial for the previous construction business.

Thanks Jim_S

I'm sure he used it to help keep in contact with his work crews for his construction business.
