iwindsurf sensors in the Great Lakes

There's a post on iwindsurf about adding iwindsurf sensors to the Great Lakes in an effort to get more people to join iwindsurf.  Here's the post on the Eastern area forum:

Who doesn't want more sensors in prime kiting and windsurfing locations? The problem is that we (iWindsurf.com) have to justify the cost of installing sensors. A problem for Ontario is that the cost is substantially higher than on the state side. This is basically because of communications costs. So, we have the Install-A-Sensor program.

So, if you're one of those people who haven't joined as an FX member because your site doesn't have a sensor you can sign up for join as and FX member ONLY IF the sensor gets installed. We have this program in place for several Lake Erie, Lake St. Clair, and Lake Huron sites. Check out these links:

Port Stanley: http://www.iWindsurf.com/portstanley
Long Point: http://www.iWindsurf.com/Longpoint


I would suggest that everyone send them a note with a request for a new sensor near your sailing site.  It can't hurt.
