Anemometer & Wind Direction

As the wind speed and direction indicator needed to clear the roof line of the house, the only logical place to fit it was on the pole which supports the TV antenna, I didn't want to add another bracket and pole to the other end gable, as this is seen from the road and I didn't want the house to look like a listening station!.

The unit is supported by an arm, this needs to point to North as the direction indicator is configured for this, a single 4 core cable is then taped down the pole before passing through the gable end wall into the loft, the loft connection can be found here, and I have mentioned about drilling holes through walls here.
