28th-30th Oct: NCI Met and Training

The met sensors on the NCI Tower are very badly exposed – indeed it would be hard to obtain good exposure on the Tower. The Calshot Activities Centre have a similar Davis system and I spent a couple of days studying whether we could get their data to the tower. On 30th I had a first meeting with Alistair Palmer of CAC to discuss the problem. Then on Saturday morning (31st) we had our first formal NCI training session. I’m now a “Trainee watchkeeper” rather than an “Assistant watchkeeper”!
