Hi loon, I thought you'd like to know that your feed is picking up 127.725 loud and clear. You can hear both sides of the conversation loud and clear. ZNY started using that frequency tonight at around 10:45 p.m. Great feed you have there!

The ZNY North Mountain Feed just went down.  Reports from home are we just lost our hard wire phone and internet connection, likely due to the storms that are moving through.  There were various reports of trees down in the area of home.  As soon as I get word from home that the utilities have been restored, I will walk someone through getting the feed running again.  I apologize for the inconvenience.

Yup... feed came back up about the time I hit send.  Phones are still out, but don't really care if Windstream never gets that fixed   :-D

Must have been a heck of a storm last evening...  I looked out this morning to find the Yagi pointing towards Harrisburg.  I thought something was up, as 128.57 just did not sound as strong as it did.  The antenna is now pointing back to the north east and things are a back to where they were.  If you have heard some clicks, hums, buzzes and other strange noises, it's only me in the "shack" re-routing and zip tying wires and I have to disconnect and reconnect plugs and wires as I go.  Ok guys, coffee cup is full, so back to work I go... enjoy your flight

Gheez... When it rains it pours, in more ways than one.  Again today, central PA got hit with another round of thunderstorms.  Yesterdays storm just turned the antenna and pointed it south.  Todays storm reeked a little more havoc.   I will repair and get the feed back to 100% in the morning.

Yep, that doesn't look like it's pointing the right way...

We are back up and pointing the right direction and a few measures in place to defeat ole Mother nature, should she try and reek havoc on my antenna again.  I hope you all enjoy your flight(s)....

Hey Loon,

Good morning, just wondering, are you using Raspberry Pi's in your feeds?  Sorry if this was asked before...

Good Morning Ron,

I don't believe it's been asked before...  Raspberry Pi's?   Forgive my ignorance, but I'm familiar with what you're asking.

OK... did a little research...  No Ron,  I'm using a small HP laptop dedicated to the feed only.  I use it for nothing else, and I got a real good deal on it.  See, my niece works as an IT person (certified, card carrying computer geek) and just happens to have a few lying around from time to time, so I got it for a real good price.... FREE!

Nice!  You definitely can't beat FREE!  I'm using Pi's on my four feeds and I like the fact that they use so little power.  It's like leaving a porch light on all the time, if that.

Just working on trying to get rid of the background noise on those feeds.  ID has been very helpful  :-)

Thanks!
