The camera used by the DRI appears to be a Canon VB-C60.

The interface has audio capability.

Was up there a few weeks ago, the camera seemed to be keeping a close eye on us. I am completely positive that while it may be up there to "collect weather data", the main reason is to monitor individuals hiking to the peak of Tikaboo. The camera was pointed at us the entire time, at least while it was light out. That camera needs to go!

Taking a look at the weather data, the wind on Dec 1 2011 was brutal. The snow depth indicator is junk. I doubt there are 96 inches of snow on the peak.

Now if the DRI put the gear on Badger Mountain, they could helicopter there and fix it. But alas, they put the gear on Tikaboo for some unknown (cough cough) reason, and will now have to wait until spring to reach the site.

There was snow at Badger spring in mid-November, so your hike to the peak must have been difficult, let alone driving to the staging area. Any photos?

We had a rough hike up, not much snow when we were there a few weeks ago. No photo's snapped, we have been up there so many times it really wasn't why we went up. However, here are some pictures from a few months ago during one of the "meet up's" we attended with other researchers.

FWIW, the Tikaboo Peak weather station is offline. The last temperature reading was on 6/7/2012.

Don't blame me! I haven't climbed it this year.

Hey wait, maybe they just want us to think it is offline....

The Tikaboo weather station is now operating as of June 26th (2012) at 8AM. No images have been uploaded to the DRI website. Of course, that doesn't mean the camera isn't working. ;-)

It seems the Tikaboo Spy Cam battery, in the words of Dr. McCoy, is dead Jim! It wasn't being charged for a few days and apparently the designers didn't engineer a cutoff circuit to prevent it from being discharged beyond repair.




This is the last photo the station took:



Two things come to mind. One, where is that guy that wanted to stay on Tikaboo for a full year. I think that photo might change his mind. Two, just how soon is the Desert Research Institute going to fix the weather station. Oh, they could have put it on Badger Mountain, just a few miles away, where there is a landing pad for a helicopter. That would make the repair possible during the winter. But wait, they couldn't spy on the Tikaboo climbers from Badger Mountain.

Come on DRI folks, get your snow shoes and fix that weather station stat!

As of January 30th, the Tikaboo weather station is back on line. Hopefully they helicoptered in the schmuck to do the repair. It was a balmy 39 deg F on the peak when the station went back on line.

This link goes to the latest photo from the spy cam.
