Some time has passed since the last big update on Atcbox so here is a new one.
- After testing with an webcam at Schiphol Centre we can conclude two things: The webcam is very viable and givesamazing images but the internet connections at that location is unsufficient to run such a webcam. The webcam willbe placed back at the old spot (at the Kaagbaan runway), possible today or tomorrow. Due to the reactions we will investigate a webcam there and how to finance that. Especially the internet connection is unclear at this moment, wedon’t whether it is actually possible to get a dedicated internet connection there and what the price is for that.
- Behind the screen works is done to see how we can migrate the current forum data to the current version of theforum software. This is quite a daunting task with 290.000 topic post, 290.000 user accounts all stored in a modified version of the forum software. Once that is done, we can start working on the website around the forumand the additional software such as the media servers for the radio/radar streams and a good solutions for watchingthe webcams.
- We’ve increased the height of the Schiphol Radar stream antenna by about 1,5 meter to increase coverage on the blindspots:Schiphol East and the Golf pier.
Once we’ve got any new news to share with you you will be updated on that.
