Quote: I have a hard time believing that an anemometer could survive 175mph winds. Has anyone here field tested anything near those conditions? We spent around 600 on our setup, and my dad unintentionaly broke it while playing a cruel prank on me (he applied water from a pressure sprayer to mock high winds!). Needless to say, I was very upset.
If you check out Davis' web site they have some data on that. Of course it all depends on what it is mounted to and if debris hits it (then forget it). Since they are typically near a roof, flying shingles will likely do it in way before that (if the roof is still there)!
