smoke was going to shift. 
 
Any ideas on implementing this?  I think you'd need a fairly sturdy folding
tripod for each unit, something that could be staked down or held down with
bricks.  The AAG anemometers can be easily mounted on a pole.  It might be
possible to build an OpenTracker into a pipe segment with some C or D cell
batteries, with a BNC on top for an antenna.  Or you could do it in a
Pelican case and bolt it to the pole.
