    The Marshall weather station is down because T-mobile has turned off 3G cellular. The other weather stations are using wifi and are still operating. We are working on a solution and will get it going as soon as possible.

    AJX is using cellular (it’s not WiFi since the WiFi at AJX has been, historically, unreliable – the Crestline station is the only one using WiFi since there’s reliable WiFi and since the cellular signal strength up there is terrible). Sounds like AJX switched over to the 2G network when the 3G shutdown happened (on the 19th), as the SIM provider (hologram) allows devices to automatically switch between networks (depending on whichever provides the strongest signal).

    It’s possible that upgrading the directional antenna on Marshall (not sure if the frequency range for 2G is completely different than 3G – if it is, the antenna should be replaced; if they are in the same range, then perhaps just a better antenna with more gain) or pointing it at a different tower in the area would do the trick.


    SDHGPA, with the heavy contributions of Joseph DeBeer’s time, has been developing a 5G Houlfuy replacement station or at least a solution until Houlfuy develops a US 5g solution.

    Joseph is still refining the sensor data processing code, but we have three second-generation stations up and running.

    When we are more comfortable with the design and code, to be able to support it, and port the data to outside WX networks, it is Joseph’s intent to open-source the design and code.

    I’ll try pointing the yagi at another tower. Do you know what size ladder I need?

    Excellent !  Thank you.

    2022/10/30 update… Not seeing the values on the Marshall graph yet.

    Still no weather info from Marshall? Let’s get on this!


    The new antenna for the weather station has arrived, hope to get it working this week.
