Re: FD reports comments?
Well, I’m not a pilot but some searches indicate I probably meant AMSL or MSL (above mean sea level) as that’s what I was referring to. The terrain below the the mountain is at about 360’ above seal level, so I was at about 1440’ above ground level I suppose.
It’s interesting – I was building a barometer / altimeter a couple years ago using an Ardunio and a pressure transducer. My source for local barometric pressure to calibrate the thing against were my local power plant which has a computer point I can access and the local airport. I couldn’t get them to square up even after correcting for minor differences in elevation. I finally found out that the airport reports the barometric pressure as what it would be if you relocated the airport to New Orleans. Ha! They correct it to what the pressure would be at sea level.
Yes Phil, there was beer. At least in my case. We have a mixture of guys who partake and guys who don’t. I have to be careful though or I’ll sleep the whole night away. I managed to get in only about two hours of sleep, so I guess I didn’t over-indulge.

Did you mean AGL or MSL ?
