Gympie in sunny Queensland came online earlier today, with a very big thank you to Ray and Di of the Cumulus Residential Airpark Estate.

Amazing program! You and others behind it deserve an AO.

YMFD Mansfield is a site that would really benefit pilots.

DWELP use it as a fire fighting base. Cameras looking North and South might be good.

If you strongly feel that there is somewhere that needs cameras, let me know via pm for via email on the website.

Preferably with a contact name and preferably a number of someone onsite. It is painfully difficult to try and contact a government department for this kind of thing with no name to quote.

If I can get that information I can cold-call and run with it. The success rate is above 90%. The main reason for initial dismissal is a perceived high cost. Once the costs are detailed, itís usually full steam ahead.

Port Pirie are now up and running in a very dry looking South Australia.

Apologies I havenít updated the directions yet which are east and west. (east is over the tarmac)

PS: No luck on Mansfield Katz, itís not going to happen any time whilst the current operators are there.

The Ballarat cameras actually have 2 feeds with 2 cameras on 1 and 1 on the other.... yet it still goes down far too often!

One of the cameras goes down cos some ******** in the hangar turns the powerpoint off. The one at the aeroclub is the reliable one.

Some news.

I have just donated a weather camera to King Island airport. It is a single camera at present.

If anyone else is interested in contributing towards a second camera, please let me know and we can chat about it. Weíre talking sub $200. Iíve already spoken to Vortex and they are not at all interested.
