SCM Members:
The live scanner and realtime data (Incidents, Roads, Drive Times, Weather, etc) will be down for maintenance this Saturday, October 6th from 10am to 3pm. Maintenance on the computers, radio, and power infrastructure is needed as well as the integration of better backup power and generator support during extended power failures. The socalmountains.com website will remain functional during the outage (without all of the realtime info).

Thanks!
-Craig

All work has been completed. The computers, scanners, and other equipment that help keep SCM up to date is now on a 1+ hour UPS backup system. There is also a generator tied in that can manually be engaged in the event of a long term power outage.
Some other things that came out of this work:
1. The background HUM on the live Big Bear Scanner has been removed by using better interfacing cards and cabling.
2. The Road Conditions page is now complete (v1.1) and gathers realtime data from CalTrans, CHP, and Google to provide you the latest information on traffic, closures, chain requirements, road construction, etc. This data is updated in near real-time (every 15 minutes).

I feel confident that the setup is ready for Winter and whatever it throws at us! (I hope it throws a lot!).

Thanks,
Craig

Wow! Sounds like a lot of work. Thanks for doing this so we can keep informed no matter what the situation.

Thanks, guys for making the improvements!
Craig, be careful what you wish for - it's already been snowing in Montana!

HIB, I thought they might go for it earlier last week with those Santa Ana's, though we'll be warming up a bit this weekend. It's still early, however, things look to be getting somewhat cold and unsettled headed into November!

Recommended auto service stations in the Big Bear area? We need to have our Jeep's refrigerant drained from the air conditioner so we can replace the heater core ourselves. Thanks!

Thanks NSA! I did notice that the closure wasn't showing up on the CalTrans feed but then Google placed the closure last night which I thought was weird. Two different automated systems getting two different answers? How is that possible?? My bet is with CalTrans
