Deceased (well critical) Meastro Anemometer

Postby Graham Easterling » 2012 Jun 22, 19:31

My Maestro roof top anemometer has decided it's time to call it a day after 20 years in the salty sea air of west Cornwall.

20 years on & MetCheck still sell the same model http://www.metcheck.co.uk/acatalog/Wind ... estro.html If anyone knows of it, or a similar sturdy one (must withstand regular gusts > 50mph & being covered in salt spray) cheaper, then please let me know.

I have this anemometer too, although I've not had it as long as you, I'm glad to know they can last around 20 odd years.
Mine also has to endure salty sea air here on the Yorkshire coast, and I hope it lasts as long as yours has.

I got mine from Metcheck and I thought they provided great quick delivery.

Hope you get another soon.
