    Sorry to hear that Paul, how did it die? Maybe Ole can fix it?
    I've had Ole look at it and conclusion is permanent failure. Can't complain after more than 7 years. I can get another but with trees keep on growing hard to find a good location that has good open view from sunrise to sunset. However still considering it.

    Not a total loss as I upgraded to a VP2 Plus so still have sunshine data from Cumulus. Just need to find how the sunplot script can get the data from DB instead of the SR.

    That sounds extremely familiar?! :lol:
    Hi Tina, would you have any suggestions how to fix?

    Thanks,

    I've replied via PM Paul. Sorry for the delay - too much nice weather to be indoors. :D

    I want to update that I installed a replacement B-L in early October and all is working well again for me.
    Ole will be looking at the old one to determine the cause but the build quality has changed over time.

    And I can no longer say when people ask about that thing on the chimney - "that is a B-L Sunrecorder, the only one in North America!" ;)

    Enjoy,
