Align wind sensors as instructed. The wind direction can refer to one of the following:

  • True North, which uses the Earth's geographic meridians
  • Magnetic North, which is read with a magnetic compass

Magnetic declination is the difference in degrees between the true North and the magnetic North. The source for the magnetic declination needs to be current, because the declination changes over time.

The same guidelines apply to the weather transmitter.
