Re: Wind Meter, best overall buy??

It's too late to sign up any way but it looks like they have two civilian categories. I would still like to be a spectator to see what the competition is all about. Thanks for the link. I don't know how familiar you are with the area but if you need any info let me know. 4kedhorn@gmail.com

Re: Wind Meter, best overall buy??

b1g_bore,
The radio shack meter is part # 63-1119
Idid a search on radio shack's website but all I coud find was the owners manual... I guess that means they aren't making it anymore???? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img] I wish I had bought two.

Here are the specifications:
Radio Shack P/N: 63-1119
Size: 5 1/16 x 1 9/19 x 1 9/16
Weight: 3.5 oz without batteries, 5.2 oz with.
Operating Temperature: 14 F to 122 F
Accurate between 6 and 30 MPH (non variable or gusty)
Can determine direction within 30 degrees.
Display is LCD and backlit with a hold function.
Auto power off after 2 minutes
Has a built-in Red LED "flashlight"

I went to the Radio Shack site and found this photo of the unit. Also, it lists for only $29.99, if you can find it.

Guys,
Just called my local Radio Shack, gave the man the part number, he did a search in my area and found a brand new one about 50 miles from my city. I called that store, the lady stated the unit was brand new\never opened, and she would be happy to send it to my local store! Price an outrageous $9.97. Call your local store and check! I also found one on Ebay for $30.

Thanks Jeff. I did the same and they told me one store 2 miles away has three ( $9.97 ) and another store five miles away has 5.

Its an annoying green for sure.If you decide to camo it, be sure to tape over the little holes on the top. I really like the design, no little fragile fan blade to worry about.

Anyone have any experience with the Brunton Sherpa, or Brunton products in general?
