Update: 3/2/2018 Fundraiser - Wisconsin Entry Cam
Pros: View boats and weather at Wisconsin Point.
Scope: Wisconsin Point is an isolated and remote area. The limited electrical system needs to be modified to be able to provide camera power and the video stream will be beamed over to the Duluth hillside (duluthharborcam hub) where I will connect it to the internet.
Cons: At best, the video signal may be limited during bad weather due to the distance involved, I guess, we'll find out. Also, having a camera in such a remote area may prove difficult due to severe weather and vandalism. But, worth a try.
Cost: Wiring modifications =$2200
Antenna System = 500
Camera = 1500
Total est. $4200
Cost may be more if I need to buy larger antennas.
At any rate, this is a major project, but, kinda the crowning jewel of the harborcam system.
Thanks once again for your support, I am always amazed at how many folks are willing to help out.
