    Doing the CYA test

    What is the best way to do the CYA test. I have a K 2006 and usually hold the tube at waist level. Where should the sunlight be for the most acurate result. I think I saw a thread about this somewhere but I can't find it.

    Tube at waist level with you back to bright sunlight, shading the tube with your body.

    Also, try to test at around the same time of day each time you test. Small variations in the amount of available light can make a huge difference in what numbers you will get.
