In light of the fact that it is one of the hardest parts of mounting a personal weather station, I thought I would help you out. Give you a leg-up if you will.
As I thought about creating this post, I said to myself, what would really help a beginner with weather stations.
As I have moved forward with my website, George Loves Weather, several things have stuck out to me.
Mounting a weather station is key to getting there most from your weather instruments
Where you place your weather station instruments or your sensor array is very important.
Good results come from having a good location where you installed your instruments
Keeping all of these things in mind, I realized in looking at actual sales I have made to real users of my site, that their decisions often came from research and hard work.
What they ended up buying to mount their weather station is important to them
Thus here is my list of actual mounting poles, brackets, etc that have been used to mount their very own weather stations.
I have listed the first items as they are what I used to mount my AcuRite Iris 5-In-1 weather station.
The Channel Master and the Steel pole for Solare are the two items you will notice in my video.
Here is the finished mounting of the AcuRite Iris.
We had to modify the block of wood that the steel pole bracket holder was attached to.
Everything is working just fine at my son's home.
- One pole is 19. 5" long
- Second pole is 21" long
- Outside diameter of both poles is 1. 31"
- Total length of both poles is 37. 5"
- Includes connector and mounting hardware
- Supports most weather stations, including Davis...
- Configuration: Includes three assemblable 14" x...
- Includes two horizontal mounting brackets (12")...
- Ambient Weather pole mounting kit constructed of...
- Add additional mast extensions of 3 feet per...
You can see here the slight angle of the pole bracket that I referred to in this video...
As you can see this is quite the impressive list. Many of these will work for your current mounting needs.
