My Sky and Air are mounted on my car roof for measurements on the road (I’m a meteorologist). Is anyone else doing something similar?
My only issues so far has been the Sky sometimes not connecting with the hub, and with mobile vibrations tricking the Sky haptic sensor into thinking I’m in torrential rain (and not much wind). I have tried to secure things a bit better, which yielded more common 80+ mph wind measurements while in motion, as it should be.
FYI, I’m not so interested in measurements while in motion vs. those when I’m stopped, so I’ve had no reason to want to calibrate the unit to try and remove mobile speed from the wind measurements as people do when running so-called mobile mesonets in coordinated field observations.
The Air is inside an inexpensive shield of my own making, mounted with PVC and a painted plastic dome with air holes. It has no fan, but is obviously “aspirated” just fine at highway speeds and my primary interest is measurements stopped in cloudy conditions, so I’m not too concerned about that (so far).
My main concerns have been minimizing vibration and keeping the Air out of the rain, and on both counts - so far, mostly so good.
