Weather Station Siting (1 Viewer)

I am looking at buying an Ambient WS-2000 station. They provide these guidelines on siting, including a recommendation that the anemometer (and I suppose, thus the entire unit) should be a distance of at least 10x the height of the nearest obstruction (houses, trees, etc.). My wife will kill me if I mount it on the roof, so I’m looking at a pole mount. For those of you with weather stations at home, how do you have yours mounted? I’m not sure I can achieve the 10x distance, and am wondering how close to the house/fence I can get without seriously degrading the accuracy.

Thanks!
