During major contests look for streaming video/audio on UStream. When this is running it should be much faster and smoother than the cameras above, and it saves my DSL from congestion. It also has audio from in the shack, but not directly from the radios.

Still images from All 5 Cameras (refreshes automatically)

Notes:
  • The ActiveX pages only work on IE.
  • To use the Active-X pages you may need to use Username=guest and Password=guest the first time to install the control.
  • If the Java pages don't work you may have to download an older Java Runtime version.

Cameras are TrendNet TV-IP400W, except ShackCam 4 that is a TV-IP422W. The outdoor enclosure for the Outside Cam is their EL-HS800. These cameras have a built in web server with administrative and user controls.  I prefered to wrap their Java or Active-X controls in my own pages that you see here.  These use the server in each camera to stream the video for the live pages.  I also set the cameras up to ftp snapshots every 15 seconds to my internal web server for the still picture pages like this one.  Feel free to copy the source for the pages if you want to do something similar, there are a few tricks to get the login to work automatically and to handle multiple cameras on a network. 

Camera Locations in shack:



ShackCam4 is mobile, it usually looks out the window between the 40m and 20m stations at the solar panels but can be moved elsewhere as needed.
