My PWS, KCAALMAN1, has been missing data since circa 3:05 pm on 11/29/12 in the middle of a rain event. When I got up here on Fri. night, it was apparent that we have lost our wireless Digital Path connection with the Mt. Dyer transmitter. Digital Path Tech Support has come to the conclusion that our antenna in the tree needs repair. That's interesting since a new one was installed this winter on 1/27/12. It is the "dish type" that is DP's high gain unit and has shown good performance up until this failure.
They say they can get to it some time after Mon. 12/3. So we will be "off the air" for a few more days it looks like.
