    riseman accuracy

    took my Riseman to the top of the Smokey Mountains in Tennesse. The altimator was pretty much dead on. Clayman's Dome is at 2058 meters and the Riseman registered 2050 meters. after i get to download the pics i will post some. they had vista maps and you could see about 40 miles away.

    Simply a breathtaking view.

    Hi Koenick,

    Nice to hear about the accuracy of the Riseman. Since it has 5m increments I think that's dead on, considdering airpressure can change while setting at the bottom. The maximum deviation is 5 + 5 = 10 meters, so 8 meters off is spot on (there is also a deviation of 5m while setting the watch at the bottom).

    I like to see the pictures. As you know I live on a pancake island and have to ride over 250 km to see the first 300m hills I think you can understand Mountais fascinate me,

    Cheers,

    Sjos

    Thats pretty accurate, i can never understand why the altimeter on my riseman goes up on an aeroplane, i thought it worked on air pressure, and a planes cabin is pressurized, yet it still goes up!!!

    Hi Bridger,

    I'm not sure, but I have heard the cabine pressure is stabilized to a pressure equal to that of around 2000m. I can ask Ron Engels (pilot and moderator of the millitary and pilot watches forum).

    Cheers,

    Hi Sjors

    One of the bands I like, have sung a rather nice soung about the mountains in your country.

    I was born in the valley of bricks
    Where the river runs high above the rooftops
    I was waiting for the cars coming home late at night
    From the Dutch mountains

    In the Dutch mountains
    Mountains


    FWIW they have also sung a few songs about Finland.!

    Thanks

    Hi Deano,

    Don't tell any one... I met that band around 1988, I even have an autographed card from them. Even more funny, the card displays an edited picture of childrens stamps of 1966, my birth year. It's even worse, I live near the "Dutch Mountains". It the song the Dunes and Dikes meant. The highest top is around 60m and a very nice steep climb with my mountain bike.

    Cheers,

    SjrS

    Ok I won't tell if you won't tell this.

    I met the band in 2000 in a record shop here in Helsinki and even got a photo of me with them. Since then I have collected all the albums and most of the singles, some now signed, plus seeing them play every time they come here.

    Top class band.!

    Thanks

    Hi Deano,

    I didn't know they were known outside The Netherlands.



    Just looked at their side and see their CD's were even released in the US and Japan... I had a great chat with Robert Jan Stips. He had a huge PPG-Wave on stage, which wasn't always working right (sometimes he hit the top of that workstation to make it sound). I believe it was the synth shown below. I believe it costed more that my whole G-Shock collection...

    Cheers,

    Sjors
