What happened in Project Hessdalen year 2001.

2000 2002

23.12.2001 The ISDN-connection to the station was fixed some minutes past 3 P.M.
20.12.2001 The ISDN-connection to the station was lost between 3 P.M. an 4 P.M.
19.12.2001 Much snow and wind today, made the zoom-camera, which is mounted on a pan-tilt unit, to not be able to move anymore.
12.12.2001 The two-camera computer started at 11 A.M.
11.12.2001 ISDN-connection to Hessdalen AMS is up again, just before 5 P.M. The two-camera computer is down.
09.12.2001 ISDN-connection to Hessdalen AMS went down at about 5:05 P.M.
07.12.2001 Made a 2min20sec part of the video from Oppdal, which was recorded on the 18.January 2001.
07.12.2001 Made the page Zoom camera alarm, which show the pictures taken by the zoom-camera, just after it has moved into the direction of the lightphenomena. This system is not adjusted, so now will it "hit" the target only in some directions. Mostly it "miss" the target. The software shall be rewritten, so that it can "hit" most times.
27.11.2001 The date and time in the two computers, two-camera and pan-tilt, is now adjusted, nearly all the time, with an exact correct clock. - So the date and time you will find in the name of the pictures from the two-camera and the zoom-camera, is now exact correct. That is the pictures which include the text "cam1", "cam2" or "color" in the filename. The date and time that is shows in the picture itself, is coming from a date-and-time unit which only can be adjusted when you are in the station. That time then not be exact correct. It is also showing the time in the summer, which is one hour wrong in the wintertime.
