STATION LOG

29/03/2022

Minor website changes to reflect discontinuation of sky camera.

22/01/2022

A few problems have plagued the system over the last year unfortunately:

 

The Bloomsky SKY2 became faulty, and due to imminent subscription costs being introduced by the company I have decided not to replace it.

The Vantage Vue continues to be reliable with only a brief recent period where data was being lost overnight due to a depleted battery (too many overcast days meant the unit could not operate purely on solar!). The battery has now been replaced and full 24 hour data is now being reported.

 

28/02/2021

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

 

28/02/2021

Fixed some connection problems affecting the Skycam where the daily timelapse video had large portions missing. Also gave it a clean. Now working perfectly.

 

05/10/2020

Added a weather forecast widget to the home page.

 

30/11/2019

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.

 

27/11/2019

Sky cam now back online and uploading normally.

 

Mid-November 2019

Connection was lost between the sky cam and router. Apologies.
