Re: better wind measurement
- Don't overlook using an Inspeed Vortex wind speed unit with your WS**

I used the WS2310 for about 3 years before buying my Davis unit, and since then wished I had done that long before. I was constantly buying replacement parts for the WS â" in fact I bought 3 entire systems because I could buy them cheaper than the individual parts and have the parts available when needed. Unfortunately, the less expensive instruments are not as accurate or reliable as the more expensive ones, in addition to being technologically inferior. That being said, I never looked into reprogramming the console to increase sample rate, but I suspect that it decrease battery life substantially in non-wired units (I know you said yours was wired). Since buying the Davis station, I have only had the cost of upgrades as I got the solar measurement sensors to add to the basic unit. Well worth it to just get a professional grade unit.
