"and was . . . getting mixed signals from Berkeley windtalker
(xbar = 3) and COW (xbar = 14, but always a bit high). Cindy had fixed the
earlier windtalker "not answering" problem, but maybe something else wrong

I checked the result after I fixed it and it was giving the correct
direction and average speed, etc. In years past the yacht club talker has
read about 2 mph lower average than the Hs. Lordships. This year that
difference has often been about 4 mph and sometimes in a vastly different
direction. Having examined the wind at the marina (in person) nearly 180
times this year, I concluded that the anemometers were indeed reporting what
was there, and therefore there was no need to beg Jay to come and clean out
the earwigs from the one on the yacht club. Remember, that the yacht club
anemometer is about 15 feet lower than Hs. Lordships, there are trees to the
south which have grown, and it is a wee bit farther off the water and I
think not quite as subject to venturi (if you will) over the top of the
building and around the point as the Hs. Lordships machine might be.
