24-hour All-sky LED Photometer for NearSys Station, 10 November 2018

The LED Photometer required two repairs before it could start collecting data again. So there have been no reports since May. I finally had time and inclination inclination to troubleshoot and repair it. Below is the proper output from the working photometer. It can be seen that between 2:00 and 3:30 PM MST NearSys Station experienced partially cloudy skies.

Unlike past reports, the photometer now includes red data. However, the photometer still operates from a four "AAA" alkaline cell pack. So I plan to switch it and the UV-B Photometer over to a 5V rechargeable battery pack. Then perhaps place them inside the weather-proof can I partially 3D designed and built. Then assemble the GPS recorder for the buoy???
