Which forum? Which forum? I choose Fragile Earth because weather.

Just took a look at our local radar site because there are some flash flood warnings up. No radar, instead there's this:


WSR-88D PHMO/HMO MOLOKAI RADAR
SPOT BLANKING HAS BEEN A DISABLED TILL MONDAY EVENING 4/29
DUE TO WEATHER.

Welp. I hope that Jeff Goldblum is a) not busy; and, b) he still has a copy of autocad laying around.

Because that is how it starts. First, They take out our communication networks!!

Well wither or whether the weather is announced soon, we will wait. According to my kitchen window there is only dark weather.

These sophisticated radars are nice when they are working. But more parts and capabilities mean more opportunity for something to break down in harsh weather.

Simple things like rain gauges will still work because all they need is electricity and room to open the top to allow the rain in. The lid is activated by a pad that at the 1st drop of moisture of any kind will open up. We might not get the correct count of raindrops if the wind is high pushing the rain at a bad angle to the counter. (FYI, we measure both the number of raindrops that hit the sensor and volume over time). Conversely, things which are not simple take a lot of trial and error to find the proper SOP that gets the most accurate results.

First time I've seen this sort of thing. I wonder what "spot blanking" is.

I've been an amateur for forty five years or so. Ever since I started hang gliding. Wx is sort of important for hang gliding.

So far my buddy says
"interesting"

Which means you, Phage, tweaked his brain to do the research for us ultimately. I was just the messenger.

Very brave man. Kudos. I think I would like that but I do have some fear of high spots. Now, I still like an adrenaline rush.

Fear of heights is rare. Fear of falling isn't.

Hang gliding is flying, not falling. Not much of a rush either. Pretty calming, mostly. Unless you get the weather wrong.
