Collection for LZ webcam & weather station @ Brento Can't Post

Following the success of the exit point weather station installed at Brento we will install the same type of station in the landing area and also a webcam.

The goal will be to have a single webpage where you can see:
- real time exit wind conditions
- real time LZ wind conditions
- live webcam image of wall for clouds
- weather forecast

The system we would like to install is from Holfuy.

The BASE Store (me) will take care of the installation and the 8m pole already exists the LZ.

BASE jumpers from around the world have donated to pay for the system in less than one day.

Thank you for your support,
James Boole
