Wx satallite system down

8 08 2012

It has been noted that the satellite system has not produced any recent images.

Upon investigation we have concluded that the GaAs FET in the RX front end has been damaged by static build up / discharge from a recent thunderstorm.

The unit will require repair and bench testing before return to operation.

No timeframe has yet been decided for this repair – updates will follow.


Humidity data capture potential changes

6 08 2012

Having noticed a reading of 180% in April, I have decided that this percentage is very unlikely so I will review the data collection so there may be some changes and potentially gaps in data as the system goes of line for a short time for renovation.
