Our Prattville (Lake Almanor) PWS is back!

By: joecook1 , 7:23 AM GMT on April 30, 2011

Today, 4/29/11, the troops from Digital Path (DP) got our wireless broadband connection back on the air after nearly 2 1/2 months down. We lost the system on 2/15 during a heavy snowstorm that loaded all the trees in the area and for whatever reason, the transponder went down. Today, they replaced the CPE with the latest dish version and added a new down cable and lightning protector.

So, the PWS is back on the Wunderground and updating every 10 minutes again with Almanor data. It has been a good year for snow and the lake is high for this time of year. The island off shore here is about to disappear for awhile. :-)
