Re: Looking For Opinions On My Placement of 2308 Temp/Hum Sensor
I think I read that as well. I thought I saw somewhere between 4 and
6 feet off the ground, away from concrete, preferably over grass, and
all kinds of other stuff. I figure it is $100 station so if I get
decent data by placing it as well as I can that will have to be good
enough till I am rich and can upgrade to a Davis or something with
one of those fancy aspirated radiation shields. Too bad I have to put
in a 100 foot mast to clear the huge pine trees all around me so I
get good wind readings from all directions :)
