Hang in there!

We are oh so close.  

But that counts only in horseshoes.

We were ready to put the nest out earlier this week.  Everything seemed to be working   And everything was ready.

And then on Monday the camera went down!

With the help of the good wizards (Anthony) from Broadband Minnesota, we got the camera up and running again.

Then Tuesday the infrared light (which allows you to see the nest at night) quit working.

Now we were ready to go.  Right?  


Then the sound quit working!

As I write this, the good Broadband Minnesota folks are on their way out to Loon Lake to try to fix the sound.  I figured that you would not be happy if the sound was not there.

I tell you this not to make you feel sorry for us.

But just to give you a little glimpse of all the myriad of things that have to work just exactly right in order to bring the LoonCam to you.

And once the nest is in the water, it is 100 times as difficult to troubleshoot and try to make fixes.

Once the loons are on the nest, then there is no opportunity to fix much of anything.

So hang in there.

We are working on it.

And hopefully VERY soon you will have your beloved LoonCam LIVE once again.
