Re: MX keeps stopping uploading to website

I put a powered hub in yesterday but it failed again overnight. Do you think there is any point in getting a "better" USB cable or fitting a couple of ferrite chokes?

I have a Pi Zero W on order so I'll do a new installation on that and report back.

Re: MX keeps stopping uploading to website

Great view :)

I have one of these which I put in the line last night. As far as I could tell, no power was coming out of the USB port to feed the console.

I have the USB power meter as one of my other RPis has an RTL-SDR dongle which does consume a lot of power from the USB port.

Re: MX keeps stopping uploading to website

Hi Steve, Thanks for your reply. I'm not using a powered hub but I do have one somewhere. I'd worked out the problem was something to do with the USB port but hoped it was something obvious. I think this is a different Pi that the WMR928 was attached to but I may be wrong. It happened again this mor...

MX keeps stopping uploading to website

I installed MX some while ago on a Pi 2 with an Oregon Scientific WMR 928 console. MX would occasionally just stop updating the website and the MX console would not load in Firefox. I could still get to the Pi with PuTTY so I just did a restart. The WMR 928 was pensioned off in March and was replace...

Re: Data not uploading.

Sorry for hijacking this thread but is there anything special required to get a Pi zero w to run Cumulus MX? I already have it running on a Pi 2 but want to swap it to Zero W.

Can I just pop the card from the Pi 2 into the Pi Zero?
Thanks

Re: Amazing con trail

The guys at Metabunk would like to know of any more sightings of this particular event as they are quite rare. Did any of you see it? What about on your webcams? Sunday 12th April between say 10:00 and 12:00 BST. The trail was West to East and should have been visible 25 miles of a line drawn from t...

Amazing con trail

I wandered into the garden this morning and looked up and saw this !! Some sort of wind shear? By the time I'd gone indoors and got the camera out the trail had begun to disperse. From my house the trail continued to squiggle for miles. I sat with the camera at the ready for another hour but saw not...

Re: WMR928 Anemometer transmitter

Hi Laurent, I too have a WMR928 but my rain gauge has packed up. Similar to yours, the red light is on all the time. I think the light should only flash when it is transmitting data. Did you find a specific thing wrong or was it just a general clean up & replace the RJ12 that worked? Alkaline ba...

Thanks Steve.

.conflict and .part files

I've been looking at the data files that Cumulus produces to try to eliminate some bum data. I seem to have several files like Apr14log.txt.conflict, Month.ini.conflict, today.ini.conflict as well as one Apr14log.txt.part. Can I just delete them or are they the result of a problem with my system? V1...

Re: Aircraft (planes, google loon etc) spotting.

zetka, many thanks for your input. Not sure I understand what a shorted quarter wave stub is, I'll look it up. Can I point you at a very, very long discussion on the FlightRadar24 website about the "Best Antenna" for 1090Mhz. I'm sure your knowledge will be appreciated there. http://forum....

Sorry for the delay but here is a suitable amp for ADS-B use http://www.ebay.com/itm/RCA-IN-SATELLITE-AMPLIFIER-CVHD903-/271708865557 There are loads available on ebay but they need to cover 950MHz to 2050MHz. The important bit is 950MHz as the lower end. A few more bits are needed. A power supply t...
