Hopefully we're good. Thanks much HyLyte!
I am pleased that you've had success so far. Unfortunately, getting the wind direction calibrated properly is something of a pain in the neck. Frankly, I settle for something that's within 5 or so as I mostly rely on our Windex anyway and I'm really only interested in relative differences on the SH when referring to that. Let's hope it continues to work for awhile as going to the masthead really is also pain in the neck.
