    MOUNTING Note: Before permanently mounting ensure that the Indoor Temperature Station is able to receive WWVB signals from the desired location. Also, extreme and sudden changes in temperature will decrease the accuracy of the Weather Station, and changes in elevation will result with inaccurate weather forecasting for the next 12 to 24 hours.
