About This Station

The station is powered by a Davis Vantage Vue weather station. Weather data are collected every 2.5 seconds and the site is updated every 5 seconds using Cumulus Software. Station instrumentation is comprised of an anemometer, a rain gauge and a thermo-hydro sensor placed atop the N7BAN amateur radio station tower using a KF7P Metalwerks standoff arm.

The height of the tower (and therefore the instrumentation) varies. When the radio is not in use the tower sits at about 30 feet in height but may be extended to as high as 80 feet during radio operation. The primary purpose of the weather station is to monitor wind speeds for tower safety.
