By this I mean I will enter the BP optained when I adjust it to get close to 900 feet and believe this number to be station pressure so I would uncheck calculate for corrected pressure. Now which modle of the Krestel do I need. I bellieve my unit uses air density to calcuale BP and allitude and I can't be sure it will give me Station BP. I don't have anything that gives Station Pressure and the National Weather Staion is 25 miles away and alot higher. Dave
Once you've made sure your data istrument has been calibrated properly by following the user manual your next steps are rather simple.
Note: Also make sure your instument is giving you local, on spot readings for BP and not sea level corrected.
Now, you need to now your "on spot" elevation, GPS elevation should be close enough; enter that elevation on the data instrument and of course that will make you BP value change.
On Exbal, you enter the current "on spot" elevation and the BP given by the data instrument once the right elevation is changed into it. The box where it says "calculate std pressure" leave it unchecked unless you don't know the BP but you know the elevation then you enter the on spot elevation and check the box for the program to use the standar BP for that particular elevation. I hope that made sence.

Our Lord Jesus said that as it was in the days of Noah and
also as it was in the days of Lot so it shall be in the days...
It's happening again!!! God sent to us His prophet, and His Word
to this generation and we once more are rejecting it as was prophesied!!!
