Satellite troubles

This morning we discovered the satellite link was not working which meant we were not able to start broadcasting the Sunrise Drive. Troubleshooting and contact with the satellite operator revealed that the BUC on the satellite had stopped working. (The BUC is the part that sits at the focal point in front of the satellite dish and receives and transmits the data.)

We are working hard to get a new BUC to site as quickly as possible but that is expected to take a couple of days.
In the mean time we have moved the broadcast to our back up satellite link and will continue to broadcast #safariLIVE as scheduled, albeit at a somewhat reduced resolution and bit rate.
We will keep everyone updated on progress through our Facebook page and the #safarilive hashtag on Twitter.
