    Default Weather Stations?

    I am very strongly considering going with injection on my GN engine. My question is, what weather stations are you guys using? If any I guess. Thanks for the help.

    I'm not into the new stuff.
    You can do it this way:
    Aircraft altimeter set at 29.92
    Temp gauge
    Humidity gauge
    and I can give you a software program you can do on a laptop.

    Seen guys do that but most barometer's are not accurate enough.
    In my opinion the aircraft alt is the way to go.
    Far as temp and humidity...there is a radio shack digital deal that is not expensive and seems to work well.

    So where do you pick up a cheap altimeter? And you mind sending me the program you have too? I will PM you my email.

    Someplace that repairs airplanes. Small airports. I paid $100 for mine years ago.

    Actually I use a special calculator that is very old.....LOL...and if I remove the batteries to replace them I will lose the program. But I found something on line that is accurate to my calculator....whenever it dies I will use this.

    I just saved the web page to my laptop and the calc works even when not on line.

    I suggest you set your aircraft altimeter to 29.92 and and also enter 29.92 in the calculator.

    A lot of times when racing....we look for the "direction" the air is going. If I see the altimeter changing.....I may change the tune up anticipating the air coming in or the air going away. An Aircraft altimeter is very sensitive while many others are not.
    Adjustments to the motor depend on your experience and the air. While a change from 1500 ft DA to 1800 ft may not be a big deal.....changes above 3000 ft ( changing from 3000 to 3300 ft) may be a big deal.
    Humidity plays the least factor. Elevation and temperature play the most.

    I have a couple of "extra" Gorr units. $ 750 shipped , fresh batteries from Spike. He also checked the program when he had them both, and the alimeter was just calibrated about 5 months ago !
