No problem with either of mine, but I have heard they are quite fussy over SD card manufacturers/models. I'll take a look at mine later to see which ones they are.

What a great response .
Aber is sitting on my table now . I have one small job to finish on the unit it's self . Then it's time to mount it up . This week I hope .

Rest we still need to get off the roof so I can order a part . Hopefully we can get it down Tia weekend . Then there is about a week of work on that . Not long now

Alun and I removed the old one on the weekend
Parts have since been ordered

However we reckon it would benefit from a new clamp and attached to the red building atop of the cafe at Rest Bay..


anyone any good to weld up a few brackets??

To clarify , that's the original one at the lifeguards . Remos will be on too in the next few days ( bracket making) so we will have a backup . Rest also is almost ready , just waiting on mounting hardware
