Weather Station is Alive!


Here's the link to the weather and video feeds:
https://www.wunderground.com/persona...?ID=KORCORNE19


A few tips:
  • Scroll down to see weather history. You can change dates and look at historical data.
  • To see the latest image from the flying field, just above the weather radar map, find the tab marked "Webcam".
  • Click the small image to open a new browser window/tab.
  • To see a video timelapse, scroll down on the webcam page (that you opened using the previous step) and find the date in question. Then click "View Video". That will play a view of the last 24 hours.
  • The infrared lights go on at 2200 and go off at 0400. It's going to be great the first time we catch a coyote or mountain lion crossing the runway!

We are still tweaking the camera angle and settings. Please post a comment if you've got suggestions or questions.

Very Nicely done!!


Thanks for the Video! I muddled through it by just going to the station on the wunderground site, but this explains it more easily and saves some searching for sure!

For the adventurous "Alexa" owner


Want to ask Alexa if you can/should go flying today (based on the weather)?

Here you go - http://tristantodd.com/alexa-can-i-go-flying-today/

Cheers!

Thanks Burke - I had to reset the MiFi router. Went out this morning and just power cycled it.

When it gets hot, the device will shut down.

I get email notifications when the station goes down, but thanks for the heads up!

Broken Camera mount


Looks like someone does NOT like the new cameras.

I went flying this afternoon and saw that the entrance camera has been knocked down.
I found the camera in the weeds. I took it home - it looks like only the camera mount was broken, it's solar panel is intact.

I will PM Mondofresh as well on this.

PM me and I will return it to the field for testing/remount.
