Google satellite image 2019:

Well, it’s on short, well maintained grass. But the screen has a 2 metre picket fence on one side and a 1.5 metre picket fence on another, is too close to sheds, shade houses, and a house, and too close to 25 metre trees.

This station is non-compliant, with temperatures reported at Latest Weather Observations and used to adjust data at Acorn sites.


Percentage of all Australian sites not compliant: 26.66%.
