Back online

I don't know why, but the feed computer for Bote's Mixer Board and Bote's Wild Feed locked up hard. I was camping this weekend and could not access it remotely, but then I couldn't do anything with it locally either. I had to pull the plug and reset it the old fashioned way.

I gotta get this big UPS outfitted with big batteries and solve all this mess.

Back to normal ops for now, until the next storm rolls through.

Any idea when you may put DBFR back to the Mixer Board? Thanks

Deerfield Beach fire is currently on the Wild Feed since that scanner can hear it with an indoor antenna and the BC780 can't hear it.

One of these centuries I'll put up a telescoping pole and mount a couple antennas up there for better coverage all the way around.

The feed computer here still crashes periodically so I have to reboot it every other day or so. Sorry about that, but I'll need to gen up the old machine to get things reliable again.

Thanks for the update, keep up the good work!
