    Please could somebody help me about a wind sensor.

    We have just recieved the WS-2300 and are having problems mounting the wind sensor.we live in a first floor flat and there is no way of putting on the roof.In the back garden we have very tall fern treees which I'm sure will be an obstruction for the wind sensor.If we put the wind sensor on an 8 to 10 foot pole in the back garden away from the trees would this work ? It is so frustrating as It is my second weather station, my last one didn't work at all.

    I would be so grateful for some advice here as it's all ready to be set up today.

    Thank you very much

    Jane

    try and mounts it higher if you can, say 15 foot up and as far away from any obstruction as you can. Be it man made obstrustion or one of natures.

    The higher the sensor is the more represantative it will be, although its always a compromise.
