The weather station should be working again (again).
I am hoping it will runs happily for a couple of weeks now but I don't have remote access so if it does go wrong it will have to wait until I get back to Lasham again (again!).
The first of the new cameras is up and operating at my home - see
There are no operational cameras at Lasham...
... since the clubhouse fire.
I will maintain one or two a home and was already looking into new cameras and a better internet connection for the southside. I will try to come up with a solution which also works northside until we have a clubhouse again...
On the brighter side:
I have bought kit which will, hopefully, solve internet connectivity. I am evaluating that at home...
I have bought a variety of new cameras. I am evaluating / playing them with a home. You might see some of that on the Cameras page
Aiming to get the weather station operational again by March 1st.
Aiming to get some / all of the new cameras operational again by the end of March
Massive TODO list
✓Try to get the weather station working again
(if I manage it I will probably have to discard the rest of February's data)
✓(wip) Evaluate new 4G modem and VPN
(for south-side network / weather station / new cameras)
✓Evaluate new 5MP, fixed-focus camera (images, software and wx-proof fixings)
(these should be good to replace the existing cameras - which were quite good anyway)
✓Evaluate new 8MP, variable focus camera (images, software and wx-proof fixings)
(with adjustable field of view we should be able to get higher resolution images with less lens distortion)
✓(wip) Evaluate new 8MP, PTZ camera (images, software and wx-proof fixings)
(The intention is to put this up the 10m mast and give a near 360° view of the airfield and horizon and cover most of the areas that the fixed cameras don't)
✓Setup new PC to replace the one ruined in the fire
Install new network south-side
Get rid of old internet connection
Install south-side cameras
Either get the clubhouse cameras working again (temporarily)
... or retrieve them and see if they are ok.
Install new network and PC north-side
Install new north-side cameras (temporarily? ...)
Manage another scan without tumours
get driving again
✓get a car
get flying again
LS6 online and annual

Build a new clubhouse to mount some new cameras 😀
The anemometer was fixed, but the wind direction needs tuning (it is probably within 20 degrees). (9/7/2020)

(David Masson at Lasham Depending on workload, will try to maintain the outlook and soaring foreacasts for most XC-able days)
