The AN/GMQ-11 is a three-part portable set used to measure windspeed and direction. The transmitter, indicator, and
support assembly make up the wind measuring set. It can measure windspeed in knots or mph from 0 to 120. Wind
direction indicates a 360-degree range. Windspeed or direction may be read off of the indicator dials or recorded using an
auxiliary recorder set. The recorder has a 0- to 240-knot or mph range. The support assembly and transmitter are
designed to function outdoors under almost all weather conditions. The indicator is used in a sheltered area.
