Canebas Weather Station uses a Davis Vantage Pro-2 weather station for the core of the weather instruments.  The particular model model (6152) has the standard radiation shield.  However, the actual temperature and humidity data is supplied by a second Davis temperature/humidity probe (model 6382) that is located underneath a deck and therefore completely escapes all solar radiation.   Below is a photo showing the weather instruments including an inset image of the temperature/humidy probe:

As can be seen in the photo above, the anemometer is mounted on a 10 feet high mast above the roof.  However, the house is in the wind shadow of a hill and tall trees.  Therefore the wind data does not represent the uninterrupted air flow.  All other data is believed to represent the ambient conditions at the station.  The difference in temperatures between the temperature probe under the deck and the probe that is part of the ISS unit is believed to be caused by solar radiation heating and associated warming from a concrete patio directly underneath the ISS unit.

The wireless data is sent to a Davis Weather Envoy (model 6316) which is connected to a MacBook Pro (mid-2009).  The Mac is running OS-10.6.x (Snow Leopard) and the weather software is WeatherCat.
