General Emulator Discussion / Cities On The Radar
« on: January 30, 2009, 09:30:17 PM »
My two radar screens show some weird city locations.  I've attached screenshots of my radar screens - first one is zoomed into Vermont and northern NY, the second is the east coast zoomed out.  For the Vermont/NNY one, it seems as if its selecting cities in alphabetical order and some of those are obscure locations.  The zoomed out Northeast radar has a mix between obvious cities (Rochester, Pittsburg, Detroit, Boston) and the obscure (Amagansett - which appears to be in the middle of Long Island Sound, and Abbot Village, ME. 

Anyone else get this same thing?  Where are they getting these obscure locations from?

What a crazy weather week its been here in Vermont, and you can follow it all on my youtube page... www.youtube.com/shadyjayvt

I just put up a couple 4000 emulator vids... one from Sunday 12/7/08 and one from today, Wed 12/10/08.  The 12/10 vid shows quite the temperature contrast on the "latest observations" screen. 

Be advised, these vids were shot with my digital camera propped up looking at the monitor, with music added later.  So the alignment isn't perfect, but its there. 


A friend of mine who ran a small cable system here in Vermont is selling his Weatherstar JR. 
He's asking $200, which includes:
*  unit w/ keyboard and original Wagner manual
*  c-band satellite receiver
*  wedge type video cypher II descrambler

If interested, PM me for the details!


OCMs & Personalities / Cantore's got it right
« on: August 08, 2008, 09:59:04 PM »
For those Evening Edition watchers out there, you may have heard Jim Cantore talk a lot lately about Vermont and the horrendous weather we've been having all summer up here.  He showed flood footage in VT earlier this week, drove by it today and it is bad.  Every day since around June, rain has fallen, in some places, 3-4" each day.  Rivers are wild and high.  Fields are flooded.  Farmers are hurting.  Tourism is hurting.  Our last rain-free weekend was July 4. 

Cantore is a native of White River Jct, VT and I love it when he talks about what's going on in my neck of the woods.  And when we see weather events happening on TV, its difficult to picture it in person.  Well, its real, and thanks to Jim for the "heads up".

for '08.

second is an afternoon XL featuring a Tornado Watch and a Severe Thunderstorm Warning... a rough evening in VT!
