Weather Station installed - 22 March 2008 PDF Print E-mail
Written by Basil Cambanis   
Saturday, 22 March 2008 02:00

The Weather station was installed at Sterkfontein Dam Parks Board offices and the wind meter was raised on a mast above the roof.
Due to my right arm still healing (broken in late January) , I was not able to climb up onto the roof to calibrate the direction or install the rain gauge.
The signal in the office is very weak and web updates are taking place very infrequently; a signal booster will be need to be installed before the updates will take place every 15 minutes.


ABOVE: External gauges for wind speed and direction, temperature, barometer and hydrometer
ABOVE: Parks Board offices on top of the hill overlooking the dam with gauges installed on the roof for accurate readings
