Remote base station W0ZSW will be taken offline if severe thunderstorms are in the vicinity of Minneapolis-St. Paul Minnesota. This is simply a prudent measure we take to avoid lightning damage to the equipment. The station will return to service as soon as the weather passes through.
Please report any undocumented outages to us as soon as you notice them. A long outage is rare for us, but please be aware that thunderstorm season is underway here in the Upper Midwest and this will continue to disrupt service periodically. From time to time the station will be taken offline to avoid lightning damage.
