The TPL NDBC is not reporting hourly like it has for many years. Wondering if it will ever get repaired so we can the data we need to make decisions. Your thoughts?

They (the Sterling WFO) relies upon the buoy heavily. I'm sure it will be back up and running in the next few days

I spoke with a caretaker today and he said it is up to NOAA to replace and they are based in Alabama. Apparently the signal goes to a SAT then alabama then is posted. Not sure when they will be in this area to replace.

The weekly status report for last week states: "Intermittent station data due to parity errors and truncations. Dewpoint data failed 6/15/15."

This is almost certainly due to low gain on the satellite uplink, and could be as simple as re-seating a connector or cleaning a battery terminal.
