I purchased a weather station from Home Depot from ACU-RITE, that includes a wireless wind sensor. It has a wireless outside temperature and humidity sensor and various mounting brackets. I have had several other brands but they get confused with other wireless devices and have to be reset all the time. This one works all the time and batteries have lasted over 6 months now. I wanted the wind meter, to view the gusts and wind speed for, my bring the awning in decision maker. I don't have an automatic awning. This has so much information for the $89.00 I paid for it. Clock barometer date wind etc. I tried to mount it to the top of the ladder and it worked great until a brushed by a bush at a park and it broke. I have tried to figure out how to attach it so I don't have to crawl up the ladder to change batteries and have the wind blowing on it while driving. FYI, here is what I did. Installed a 1' pole buddy which is set up for the right side of the ladder. Their 1.5 and 2 pole holders go on the left side. Their idea is so unique and works so easy to insert poles from the ground. Flagpole Buddy ~ 1.0" Mounts (Pole not included)
The 1" holds 3/4" schedule 80 or 40 PVC perfectly. I used schedule 80 and the wind sensor has a bracket the fits 3/4" PVC so I glued it on. Now I can take the wind sensor off before travel. Deluxe Weather Station Forecaster - 00825 at The Home Depot
PS: I made another little Don't forget tag for my steering wheel so I remember to take it down. By the way the wind sensor and mounting bracket was replaced for $6.00. Also Flag Pole buddy has great customer service.
