WeatherStar 4000 videos
« on: January 25, 2009, 12:46:04 PM »
Here are some videos of a 4000 still operating in 2009. The star is located on the Auburn University campus cable system and seems to be in pretty good condition. Its pretty cool since it still has the exact same configuration as the city of Auburn's 4000 that I lost around 2000.

Cool clips. There is no apparent degradation. Do you have any older videos of this 4000?

Sadly, I don't. I just discovered this one when I started college last fall. I never recorded any of the older stars from the city of Auburn.

It appears quite often down here, especially in the fall and winter.

I have some more videos but it appears they're about 1-2 mb over the attachment limit.

Thanks for the videos! You are so lucky having a 4000!
Never storm chase and play Pokémon GO at the same time!

Youtube has not exactly been very friendly to me over the years... but I am working on getting a clip of the station ID up for you guys.

Also if you're wondering about the 4000 LDL, the one and only time I've seen it was during Hurricane Ike when it came on for like 2 mins

Very nice, but the text doesn't line up correctly w/ the graphics. They need to make the on-air appearance more "backwards compatible" with older STARs.
