WH1080 wind direction monitor

Postby amacqueen » Tue Nov 09, 2010 10:50 am

Hi - I am new to all this, and bought the WH 1080 model.
All seems to work well, but living in a very sheltered wooded area, the wind direction vane is somewhat erratic - is there a way of dampening this, and if so does it corrupt the data.
So far I have tried blue tack, but not with any noticeable effect.
