Nice warm day, wish the wind was stronger, 3 more strong gust could help improve on my 5x10, oh well there is always next time. Still good to see 40tks in this kind of wind.

Not enough wind and hard to catch gusts made it for a game of chasing gusts all day long.
It was a perfect day to get some testing done on a GW-60 with 50 Hz setting versus GT-31. Results for short distance speeds and @500 are drastically different:
Max. 36.428 38.916
2 sec. 36.292 37.994
5 x 2 sec. 34.029 34.824
10 sec. 34.834 35.650
5 x 10 sec. 33.203 33.714
100m 35.598 36.670
250m 34.554 35.091
500m 33.373 33.685
NM 19.817 19.908
@500 23.600 20.238
While GW-60 was way faster at straight runs, GT-31 was smoking it big time at @500 . I had two GT-31 units and one GW-60. Both GT-31 units were showing nearly identical speeds in all categories, within hundreds of a knot.
More testing to be done.......but really, which unit is more accurate. I would think GW-60 at 5hz would be more accurate and being more practical unit to use it would have to be the benchmark unit??? Is GT-31 obsolete??? Probably, if one wants to be competitive.
