ST60 Wind instrument diagnosis

Trying to help a friend with a 10 year old ST60. Wind angle is correct but wind speed is about 1/2 of actual.
Start with connections? Sending unit? Anyone have the voltage readings?

Thanks

Re: ST60 Wind instrument diagnosis

I had trouble and needed a new transducer at the top of the mast.

Re: ST60 Wind instrument diagnosis

Oh, I'm having same type issue. Wind velocity seems okay but direction is off 90 to 180 degrees after calibration.

Re: ST60 Wind instrument diagnosis

Wind angle can be user corrected on the device, but should only require tweaking by a few degrees.

That's what the book says.

Acts like a bad transducer --- as soon as wind is off the bow the needle jumps 90 degrees or so, always to starboard regardless of wind.
