Re: Anonometer hook up
Most likely someone updated your instruments and never did use the anemometer after that because the cable didn't fit. Without knowing the brand of the masthead unit it will be tough to get any info on the wiring arrangement.. And in any event there's a high likelihood they wouldn't be compatible anyway.
It was probably just too much work to go up and remove the old unit... If you can get up there maybe you'll see a brand/model marking.. you'd need that to even get started trying to sort this out.
EDIT.. btw please avoid posting the same question in multiple forums or multiple times...
