Pakistan whitewater video

Hi all, Here is some video that Ali Donald, Brian O'Callaghan, Coran Kelly, Cuan McCarrick, Garry Noonan, Hugh O'Donnell, Ken McCarthy and myself took in Pakistan a few years back. It got dragged out of the cupboard recently so I uploaded it to youtube. The whole thing is about 45min. If thats a bit...

Re: Kerry levels

Bryan,
you were close on the number but no cigar

The number of the Flesk gauge is 086-3029881
Each beep represents 10cm
eg 7 beeps means the level is between 70cm and 79cm

Did you hear about the dyslexic agnostic insomniac,
he stayed up all night wondering if there really was a dog :cry:

Re: Getting started building a Gauge

The old layout for the tracks and components in on the website at http://pei.ucc.ie/daithi/RiverSpy22_silkscreen.pdf but that verion can't be mass produced as its dependent on a supply of reliable old siemens phones which don't exist. The sensor piece won't change very much though (see below) The ne...

Flesk gauge testing

The Flesk gauge is fixed but is sitting in a bin of water at the moment so ignore the data.
All going well, it will go back in the river next Sunday,

I don't agree

Well, the next time ye go surfing, see how long ye can surf a wave without using a low brace turn!

Re: Flesk Gauge

I went for a look on Sat evening. The phone was reading "NO SIM". I took the SIM out and put it back in again and the system recovered. I imagine that a winter of vibrations caused the SIM holder to slip down a little. I put it back together with the phone upside down so we should be back in action ...

Re: Annamoe gauge on Sundays

It definately sounds like there are back doors into the code! I reckon that its part of an underhand conspiracy with the express purpose of annoying Dublin people :twisted: How many Sundays did you observe to be missed before you came up with this theory? Last Sunday, it worked fine anyway. The phon...

Re: Tree clearing on the Gaddagh, Sat 1st

Tree clearing on the Gaddagh is back on for the weekend of 1st of March.

Re: Gauges Down

The Flesk one seems to be down at the river end. I'd imagine that the 12V battery needs replacing. Low light has meant that it is working much harder and the cold temperatures probably hastened its end of life. 1.2Ahr is probably a bit small considering the amount of charging/discharging that it has...

Re: Building a river gauge

Hi Seanie, What TI part are you missing? I probably have some spares. Wiring the phone is one of the trickiest bits and should be left until towards the end. I've put some pictures of the m35 job at http://pei.ucc.ie/daithi/m35/m35.html The C45 seems to be fairly similar. A very fine soldering iron ...
