Why Can't I get the Kestrel 5500 Weather Meter or Sportsman with LiNK without the Vane Mount?
Question: "Can I get the Kestrel 5500 Weather Meter with LiNK without the Vane Mount?"
Answer: “We intentionally packaged the vane mount with the Kestrel 5500 with LiNK. We feel strongly that this is the best solution for comprehensive measurement of weather conditions. This package is world’s most complete weather meter AND the world’s most portable weather station.
The true versatility of the Kestrel 5500 becomes apparent with the addition of the Kestrel Vane Mount. This precision engineered accessory securely mounts the Kestrel 5500 to any tripod or other ¼-20 fitted bracket. Once mounted, the Kestrel 5500 becomes a full-featured weather station – with a large wind vane and precision pivot keeping the Kestrel oriented into the wind for continuous measurement and logging of wind speed, wind direction, and all other key weather parameters. The Kestrel LiNK app also displays the Kestrel’s real-time readings on a vivid, customizable dashboard – providing a remote display that functions up to 200’ away (line of sight). The ENTIRE Kestrel 5500 + Vane Mount kit weighs just 10.5 ounces / 295 grams and packs into the included padded belt carry pouch that is just 2.5 x 3 x 8.5 inches / 6.5 x 7.5 x 22 cm. Providing hundreds of hours of accurate measurements, the Kestrel 5500 is truly the world’s most compact weather station. The Rotating Vane Mount is included with the 5500 with LiNK or available for purchase separately and works with any Kestrel 5 Series meter.”
