      The NWS does not sell old equipment. Any U.S. government office that has old or surplus equipment turns it in to the General Services Administration (GSA).

          Hello Bob, if you want to build a temperature radiation shield, let's say a stevenson screen, you can go to Dimitris site from Greece, http://www.geocities.com/meteoperisteri/Klovos.html.
          I have built one myself, not exactly like that but very similar and it does it's job perfectly and it was no more than 25 USD, all you need are some ventilation panels, 4, and a larger piece for the roof and some a plastic net wire underneath, that's all. Good luck if you decide to do this. Greetings from Romania, Eugen, Oradea
