I could use some advice from you guys regarding mounting my Sky when it arrives soon (hopefully). I currently have an Ambient Weather WS-1001 WIFI, about 2 years old now. I’d like to run both stations in tandem at least for a while, so I’m thinking about getting something like the Netatmo mount, which should allow me to have both stations mounted on the same pole.
Here’s the placement: you can see at the top where I have a mounting point listed at Kids’ Play House. This is on a pole attached to a very sturdy, 2 story play house that my kids (rarely these days) play on. The added height of the play house allows me to get some extra altitude on top of the mounting bracket I have, in total about 25 feet above ground. But I’m concerned that this is too close to the tree line.
What do you guys think about the alternate mounting point I have listed below that, on the south side of the house? For that, I’d probably either mount one of these galvanized poles to one of the 4x4’s for the fence stuck in the ground, which should give me a little more than 10’ without (hopefully) having enough instability to need to guy it.
What are your thoughts on this setup?
