Looking NE, the obvious item of interest is the mountain side. While light nocturnal downslope winds may occur from this direction, NE is not expected to be a wind direction of interest.
The setup as of April 2015. Just finished installing the new wind sensor on a fiberglass pole. The pole is 10m high (about 33ft), the official height for measuring wind. It sits well above the scrub oak, and has a perfect exposure to the East (Downslope windstorms) and S/SW well above the roofline of the houses below.
This pole is supported by 24 guy wires on 6 guy rings. The pole was purchased from http://www.mgs4u.com/fiberglass-push-up-mast.htm#telescoping and is the MK-6-HD model. Guy rope and rings were also purchased from this company.
The SE facing camera is just below the pole.
A view of the guy ropes. The pole is actually pretty darn straight.
But a slight bend can be observed from underneath. There is very little give in this pole, it feels sturdy.
I have 8 anchors in the ground, each with 3 guy ropes. They radiate in four directions from the pole, one a shorter distance than the other for the lower guy ropes.
