Does anyone know the reason why the ORPEN webcam has been down for such a long period of time?

Feedback on the Nossob Webcam:
Good News: :dance:
The intermittent problem on the Nossob Webcam has been traced to the wireless card inside the camera! This issue was resolved and the webcam passed the final tests performed on it yesterday at our Head Office in Pretoria! The wireless card (although it is not used @ Nossob) caused the camera not to be able to communicate on the network now and then when powered up. Bear in mind the power at Nossob is generated by a generator and the webcam must be able to communicate back to the network at Nossob and then back to Pretoria via satellite everytime the power goes down and up again without issues.

We are busy with the arrangements to get the webcam shipped back to Nossob and have it installed and configured again to enable us to show you the beautiful sunrises, animals and nature which made this webcam very popular!

I'll keep you updated.
Regards
