For the best information on placing a weather station check out
http://wxqa.com/.  The Weather Station Resources has links to on-line
guides.  You also might consider signing up for CWOP.  Not only does your
weather data add to the collective data used by researchers and NWS, you can
also get data on the quality of your data.

   I was wondering along those same lines...

WHile at Dayton, I succumbed to an impulse and bought a refurbished
Peetbros. Ultimeter  500 station, with the intention of integrating it into
my xastir aprs implementation.  Where can I find info on the proper location
and calibration of sensors so that my observations can contribute to the
collective knowledge rather than confuse?
