Just wondering? Has anybody else experienced a meteorology test in stations? If so, how was it like, and how much harder/easier is it than a regular test? We just had one at state, and there were many little stations with 2-4 problems at each. This made it nearly impossible to split up, making the time limit really hard to meet. To test makers often do stations tests for pure study events?
I have never seen a station test for any of my study events. It's too complicated, and I feel like stations should be exclusive for certain events.

That's what I was thinking, and the rules don't say anything about stations, like some event rules say.
Problems are better pursued with General Electric GE90-115 engines.

I agree. I have only participated in a Meteorology station test once, and it was horrible.

They won't have us calculate relative humidity right? Because that needs a calculator. Has anyone seen a basic rh calculation question at states (or past nationals)? :?:
