Pocket Weather Tracker
The Kestrel 4000 by Nielsen-Kellerman
may weigh in at just 3.6 ounce, but this little powerhouse
really packs a meteorological punch. The handheld weather
station measures barometric pressure, altitude, density
altitude, temperature, humidity, wind speed, wind chill
factor, dew point, wet bulb temperature and heat stress.
More importantly, the Kestrel 4000 will record and graph up
to 250 measurements, along with the date and time of storage
giving you a record of the past while helping you prepare
for the future.
interval at which these measurements are taken is controlled
by the operator which allows you to choose the intervals
which best fits your needs. The unit will even record these
measurements while turned off.
My Kestrel 4000 was
delivered to my home on a Friday while I was out of town and was placed
on my front porch by the delivery service. I arrived home late Sunday
night to find it. While driving back into town to pick up a few items
the same night, my wife with the help of the backlight button set up the
unit and began to deliver a blow by blow account of what the weather had
been like over the past few days while we were away. She was able to do
all of this while the instruction booklet was still at home in the box.
With the barometric pressure on the pocket weather station
showing a slow rising trend we awoke to a somewhat clearing sky Monday
morning. By late morning we noticed a rapidly dropping pressure and
quickly rescheduled our outdoor photo secession we had booked for late
Monday afternoon. The proof of the Kestrel 4000's abilities came in the
form of rain....a LOT of Rain.
Dynamite really does come in a small
packages in this pocket sized weather station.
