STATION information

STATION LOG

Hardware:

- Davis Vantage Vue ISS and Console

- BloomSky SKY2 (170 degree, ultra-wide angle HD camera)

- WiFi Logger

The ISS is pole mounted at a height of approximately 10 ft. Below it sits the sky camera mounted to a fence post. Both are solar powered with battery backup. They transmit wirelessly and data is uploaded every 5 minutes.

 

The camera faces East with the village of Kenn foremost, with Exton and Lympstone in the distance beyond the Exe estuary.

Notes:

  • Elevation at the site is approximately 54m / 177ft above sea level.

  • Due to surrounding structures, easterly winds are likely to be under-represented in the data.

  • The station operates wirelessly and without use of a computer.

This station also uploads data to the following websites:

Further Skycam connection issues this week. These seem to have now resolved thanks to a wireless range extender *fingers crossed*.

Somewhat hilariously, a curious cow grazing in the field next to the sky cam decided to knock the solar panel off with its head. Camera put back to original position, all working normally.
