The camera is located on the top of Babs Carn Lowertown.
It is powered by 12 volt car batteries and a 40 watt solar panel. It is a wireless cam and the signal is picked up in Middletown by a dish aerial on the end of a barn to get line of site.It is then wired into the house where it is processed and uploaded to the internet.
For those interested in the logistics
Looking west towards
Babs Carn from behind the dish aerial
There it is, the camera in a wood & glass box
bolted to the rock.The
solar panel fixed to the rock behind.
Looking east from the camera
back to Middletown.
The barn is just about dead center of the picture
Closer, there is the barn with
the dish aerial behind.
And that's the dish that picks up the signal from the camera
Thank you Keith Baraclough
Up to the 7th June I had to change the battery twice each week. On the 7th I installed a 40 Watt solar panel. This was very generously supplied by Keith Baraclough who is a regular vistitor to St.Martins.This means that I no longer have to change batteries which is a great bonus for me.
Thank you Peter Dunne
I have never given Peter credit for his contribution to the web cam. Peter is my fountain of knowledge on things computer and camera. Over the years he has provided me with equipment and advice which has enabled me to provide the pictures. Without his help and enthusiasm none of this would have happened.
