Just got my early birthday present from the wifey. Time to retire my chinese made Airmate. The darn thing stucked reading knots rather than miles per hour anyway :doh[1]: The neat thing about Kestrel is that, it also measures altitude, barometric pressure, humidity and temperature . I used to measure these elements with my GPS. Now I can do both with one instrument. Ain't technology wonderful? DF

I have a Kestrel 4000 for my SKYWARN work, and it is great. Best prices found are on EBay though.

Hey DF, have you been able to test it out yet?

These things are great I've used just about every model they make! The newer ones are great with the nice backlighting! I know you have to recalibrate them fairly often(2-3 months) to keep the humidity accurate though!

I've used it extensively, mostly checking wind speed. I do the rest of measuring using my Casio Pathfinder watch.Posted ImagePosted Image
