New webcam for this year, still testing. Will be going full time when the snow comes
Included on the cams page now.
Nice job ducky!
like your work tom!
Ian, keep an eye on where the cam is pointed as you might want to change the name? I don't know for sure but I presume it will get angled up the hill a bit more during the season.
Tom is this cam in addition to the one Flea was using up there last year?
Yes this is another snow sports cam. the other will come back online mid june ish.
I told ian want to call the view, counldnt think what else to call it.
Also the temp is just the cam temperature not the actual temperature outside.
That's great news. will the second cam be running independently like this one? or still dependant on when the computer is plugged in and the power on?
The other cam will only run when the power is on, this one
SHOULD run all the time, hopefully.
If that's the case, I nearly think that we should swap the two so that if the village view is down then we have the slopes there all the time.
Alternate, it would be cool to have from say the ticket office through to village as the more reliable one and then the toboggan slope/homerun cam for the intermittent cam?
Just a thought?
Not possible as it's the only spot we can get reception, unless someone wants to donate an Android phone that I can plug an external antenna into.
Could get a couple of those soon. Dad and I are about to upgrade our HTC's?
Who does the set up work? does it use the camera of the phone or the phone as a transmitter only?
I also have an Nokia N95 which you might be able to use?
Take 2, ironing out the bugs, main problem is 3G reception.
HOPEFULLY, this will keep you all happy, and they work as long as there is power on.
Tom what sort of aerial if any do you have up there for reception
Got a telstra 4G modem thingy, the little black one, have an older square white plastic external antenna, it only covers the 850, 900 and 1900 MHz bands seems to work ok, I think it was somewhere around -93dba strenght.
If you can adjust at aerial at all closer you can get to -100dBa the better but you probably new that will see what I can do to help
About 1.6 degrees from true north mate should get you best signal
