Exactly, so I thought sharing with the other cam addicts won't hurt. :D


Well done.... :thumbs_up:

Was watching it by mobile and discovered it was open to view by computer, but the cams have been offline mostly(Satara and Orpen)...so I wanted to wait till they would become stabile. :hmz:

Hi all,

We have put the Orpen cam back on-line, should we experience further technical issues with Orpen we will remove the cam until such time as the issue has been resolved.

We are still awaiting feedback on Satara webcam, in order to put this back live.

Thanks

thanks so very much for letting us all know about the problems. i will try to be patient as Satara is my favorite. i would love to visit in person, but i am in Texas, U.S.A and retired. no money for a trip like that as much as i would love to bring my cameras and spend several weeks photographing the magnificent wild life in person. it has been a dream of mine. i have to settle for the cams. thanks for posting.

Update on Satara Cam:

As you know a tree is obscuring the line of sight needed for the microwave link to work causing the Satara data link to be very unstable also causing the webcam to very erratic in trying to get the images to the server. This tree has grown into the transmission path of the Satara microwave link of our telecom service provider.

Our SANParks Conservation colleagues are busy addressing this issue. As this tree is in a national park, it can't merely by trimmed or even worse be chopped down! :naughty:

The tree in the transmission path of the microwave link at Satara has been trimmed BUT the problem with the unstable line persists.

The telecom service provider are still working on this problem and are busy doing another series of tests to find the root of the problem as the link is still "flapping"! :wall:

We hope to have it resolved very soon!
