Good News! The Digital Path wireless guys were here this morning, one tree climber and one DP tech. Turned out they are brothers.
So, as of about 12:15 pm the antenna was installed and receiving/transmitting the signal from/to Mt. Dyer. The signal strength is good and hopefully will remain so thru the coming winter and beyond. KCAALMAN1 is back reporting the weather at Prattville. :-)

Our PWS, KCAALMAN1, has been down since Friday, 1/6/12, when the Digital Path (high speed wireless service) antenna was removed from its site in a fir tree. That tree, along with 2 others, had to be removed to allow the installation of a new septic system, which has now been accomplished. We have an appointment with DP to get the antenna re-installed in another tree on Friday, 1/27, so hopefully this PWS data will again be available thereafter.
Over the weekend of 1/20-22, we had about 2+" of rain and ended with about 5" of snow on Sunday for our first significant snowfall lately. It fell on essentially bare ground. Hopefully, this is the start of a very belated winter season. :-)
