I have a Vantage Pro 2 wireless unit happily mounted in the yard, but feel I want to get the anerometer up higher, and was considering switching it to pole mounting. Currently, both anerometer and ISS are mounted on a 4x4 post I set just for the unit. My hope was to use electrical conduit for the job, but can't say I've see it in anything longer than 10' lengths. My plan, if I could find a long enough length, is to 12-14' of conduit to the side of the post, butt it to the ground to avoid slippage, brace it every couple of feet with a strap, and then get the anerometer up higher. I'd prefer to avoid the weight of steel pipe, the flilmsiness of normal conduit connections, but don't know if all of this can be done.

Has anyone taken an approach similar to this?

John

You can buy Galvainized well pipe in 21ft. lengths or in 10ft. lengths. If your going the standard 33 feet your better off with the 21ft and adding a 10ft piece with a 2 ft. stub. Im using a swivel type setup to raise and lower it. Guy wires are needed for this setup.
