Photos of indoor equipment:
‘Front of house’ equipment.
Computer. You may also notice a KVM switch which is connected to an old Windows 95 computer (which has nothing to do with the weather station!)
A better view of the KVM switch, network switch and external hard drive.
Close-up of the indoor weather receiver.
Just some of the cables that keep the systems online.
The old webcam and makeshift housing, waiting to be chucked in February 2017.
