Stand/pole for garden station


Recommended Posts

Hello all, I've been looking around for a weather station recently, but a more fundamental question seems to be how exactly I can mount the station in the garden. I'm envisioning a two metre metal pole skewered in the lawn, but I'm struggling to find anything that fits the bill.

Do any of you have advice on such a set-up, and where to get hold of a pole like this?

You can get "aerial poles" designed for TV masts from places such as B&Q, Tool station or Screwfix. 

I regularly use these for my weather station network, although I usually mount them against something.

Now there's a good idea, and I've got a fence to lash it to.

From the first picture, it looks like yours has a diameter around 50mm, is that about right?
