Heres my problem. I have a Vantague Vue. Wherever I site my station, unless it is on top of a tall pole, it does not get a good all-round "view" of the wind, it is always partly blocked from some direction. In any case, as I understand it, the VantageVue isn't really meant to be stuck on top of a tall pole and it also makes it nearly impossible to get at for repairs/battery replacement etc. The missus is absolutely adamant she doesn't want it attched to the house (our house is timber framed and timber clad - a lot of houses are up here because of the weather conditions, the houses are built similar to those in Norway). At the moment I am compensating for lack of height by using the offset function in WD but thats not ideal and not always accurate.
So what would be the best solution to my wind problem? Because the Vue is an all-in-one it doesn't accept extra instruments such as another anemometer. Obviously I could invest in aVP with it's seperate sensors but why fork out that much when the Vue is perfectly good and has worked well in the conditions up here. It's only just over 1 year old.
A seperate anemometer perhaps that would work in tandem with the Vue via WD? Is that possible and what do people recommend. I'm looking for ideas. I think I've considered most options but its always good to get someone elses input as I may have missed a potentially simple solution!
Be grateful for ideas.
