    Re: Yamacam Goes Live

    Yup power is brutal, it worked great last wk with all the sun up top. and it will work better with longer days and better weather.
    We put a timer on it to conserve power and every time power goes off now it offsets timer and the view. I have to move it every morning or find a friend who can. Then try and find someone going up who can reset the system.
    Having people staying late into the evening and running the lights till power is dead doesn`t help.
    Found one of the lights in cabin it`s timer wasn`t working.
    Sometimes the sattelite is a problem. A vicious circle some days. It has been a huge learning curve, good thing my hair is gray. lol and a good thing I still have friends who will answer my calls still and work with me.
    We are looking at having the camera have it`s own power system with solar panels and forklift batteries, again thanks to friends. But this will happen next season.
    So not trying to make excuses just letting you know what is up.
    On average the Yamacam gets 500 hits a day and more when there is snow in the forecast. So a lot of you are using it and it does work great to increase traffic to the club`s website.
    It will get better, just gotta work out the bugs. Trying!!!!

    YamaCam | Revelstoke Snowmobile Club

    Yes it was working and is down again due to no power. Ran the genny last Wed and camera ran till Sun with 2560 views without system fully charged and this is an improvement. The page describes the changes we have made to conserve power. We need to run generator 3 days to fully charge system, no solar in forecast to collect. We will try to get back up on Fri. to run genny, now is the challenge to try and get up in the 6x6 and get stuck in snow and mud or be able to drive a truck far enough up to unload your sled and run on not enough snow and either way we need to haul fuel. There is no rd and there is an elevation closure to wheeled vehicles. The club can only travel up to do maintenance at cabin. Until we have groomers running up on a regular basis to run generator camera transmission will be intermittent due to access and power.
    Snow dancing is recommended and lots of it so we can truck groomers up to the snowline to start the grooming program.
    We are trying.
