A decibel meter then?
Why the two values? To zero it out?

Good guess miniman!

edit: 21 bucks at Amazon. Whoda thunk?

That was my first thought too! It didn't look like the pictures I was able to find, but that doesn't necessarily mean anything, since we don't know when this picture was taken. I have always wanted to go to Four Corners.

No to four corners, no to biblical significance.

The measurement will jump around a few times a second, so I imagine it's helpful to pinpoint the maximum and minimum values in case you blink and miss it!

It's nice to say you've been, but it's far less interesting than the mystery place looks!

That scenery is hard to place, but I'm reminded of New Mexico, so I'm going to guess it has something to do with the Trinity Test Site.
