Station Situation

Mercury Wendy station is on top of one of the twin radio masts at Weather Down, between Clanfield and East Meon, Hants. Called Mercury because of the nearby HMS Mercury naval radio station, it is approx 1 mile west of Butser Hill, and lies southwest of Petersfield. For detailed location, see the linked map.|OS Grid ref: SU675195|Altitude: 328ft (100m)

Interpreting Readings

The actual site at Mercury takes winds principally from ENE , E, and ESE, but the Wendy station is used to check the winds for other nearby hills, which take other wind directions. The anemometer is approx 60 feet above ground level, and is slightly screened in Northerly winds, so may under-read a bit in that quadrant. more...

Pilot Notes

The site is used by Hang Gliders, and Paragliders, who belong to the Sky Surfers Hang and Paragliding Club, who should be contacted before flying a Hang or Paraglider in the area. The site is also used by model flyers, I understand.
