An informative day for those involved in Work at Height. Ideal opportunity to meet with SpanSet, network with industry colleagues and learn about the new Gotcha2 Rescue Kit.
TheBitterEnd said:What is interesting about this event is that our perception was that it had been dry for several days and that overnight it hadn't rained much, just a bit of drizzel. Just checked the CDG Vis Bot and the rain guage readings would seem to confirm that.
Pitlamp said:There's a short report about this in a CPC Record, if anyone did want to look it up. (Langcliffe, if your copy's to hand, maybe you could post the actual reference here? My collection is currently buried, after decorating.)
TheBitterEnd said:I wonder if there is any kind of funding available to produce some rain guages that could be left up on the fells for a year or so?
TheBitterEnd said:If there is genuine interest I'd be up for putting together a proto-type/proof of concept.
TheBitterEnd said:I had a look at the BCRA web-page and it's not immediately obvious that this would fall into their objectives. Besides which their application form wants dates, project supervisor, referees, etc. and whilst that is not unreasonable it's not a set of hoops through which I want to jump on my own.
Bob Smith said:An entry level professional weather station comes in at around that price, and I would have thought that an Arduino based system with logging could be done for ?50 and some time. this would be well worth some thought and I too would be willing to throw some effort at it. Great idea TheBitterEnd
