My WeatherFlow came in 3 weeks ago and I’ve been contemplating just how to mount it, given the need to avoid vibration for the Sky unit. Now Hurricane Florence is on the way and I’d like to get it up, even in a temporary way, before next weekend.
Some particulars…I’m in the Piedmont area of North Carolina, about 180 miles from Wilmington, which is the likely area of landfall. From the forecast so far, it will then come barging inland, with the center passing somewhere pretty close by.
I have a 16’ +/- heavy duty fiberglass extension pole that I was planning on using for a test mount. Strapped to the deck railing that should get me 5’ or so above the peak of the roof and 8-10’ away from the edge of the roof. I can guy this to increase its rigidity and better secure it.
I’d love to have a “baptism by fire” of the unit, but I don’t want to unnecessarily risk it. Input will be gratefully welcomed.
