With all the recent installations, I know we'll see plenty of cool pictures from Ben's webcams. I'm starting this thread so we can share the pictures that we like here.

I love the webcams. Would love to see a mobile one. Would be fun to ride with cammy out in the woods.
Butler peak would be the best place for one that could rotate. Would be neat to have an ocean view, or to see into Mexico, and a great shot of the valley.
My view of San Jacinto is about the same but from a lot farther away. If that one rotates you can get another San G cam

I'd love to put a webcam up at Butler Peak! I've even tried to think of a way to just take something up there on the days we staff the tower. But the only way I can think of to accomplish that is to use my cell phone and I really don't want to tie it up all day while we're in the tower. And I'm certainly not leaving it up there when we're not in the tower!
The best way I can think of to have a webcam up there when we're there is to use one of my old phones (that's actually what's taking these pictures: [Click Here]). But I need an automated way to send the pictures from the old phone to my current one so it can send the pictures out on the internet. I think I'd need to use Bluetooth to send the images from one phone to the other. But in my searching, I can't find an app that will automatically send the pictures every 10 minutes or so. Then I'd probably need another app to automatically find the images on my new phone and upload them to the internet, again, automatically.

Too much of the time, I don't have a decent cell signal out in the forest.

someday they will have it. I would think the FS would go for it so they could see first hand.
As for now a gopro would be the best way but then not live.

We've had them up on Bertha Peak in the past, not Butler, I may have mentioned that one in the past. Cammy is there power at Butler? I know Bertha there is as we had a cam up there for the X-Games @ Summit and shot the signal down.

How much power do they need? It shouldn't take a lot in solar panels to run it.
Of course if it can't be isolated after every thunderstorm it would have to be replaced.
FS should be happy to have it if they can control it's direction when they need to. A good camera with magnification could almost replace a spotter plane during fires

Depending on which side of the tower you're on.
On one side, I get fast 4G signal. On the other side, there's not even enough signal to receive a phone call.

Woah! Did the camera have a huge amount of zoom or what?

Generally those forest service will have sign when it’s required.
But I’m wondering if BBLMWD put into thought that limitation on parking lot is having adverse affects on traffic by the east boat ramp. Don’t know did it but someone picked up a lot trash along from the weekend on Northshore. Saw about 10 white full trash bags when going to the farmers market today. So thank you to whoever was responsible.

If these people that are parked all over the place at the lake aren't being charged for an adventure pass somebody is losing a ton of money.

Yeah no trees here to speak of. Our Plant Hardiness Climate Zone changes a notch I think.

QuietOne, interesting, i didn't know the assigned station had to relocate (move) to the on call empty station (cover). Thought they just handled the busy dept's area. Bring you pillow bunk swap!
