Hi LeBow,
I had this problem for the last 2 years, Have a look at www.lsdx.eu/GPV_ZSDX: there should be one line each hour as my 3G modem is on about 10 minutes per hour (security)
Presently I am using the 03.015.005 firmware read Mate3 with a python script in a Raspberry Pi and send the data to my web page by 3G
What about Mate3S. If I could be sure that communication problem is fixed I might make the expense.
Bye

Ohé Ohé!!! Anyone around?
Still waiting for answers about that damned cat5 cable erratically recognized by Mate3
as you may see on lsdx.eu/ZSDX which should show on line per hour
Waiting

My own system (Raspbzerry Pi, Router Modem 3G and a Python script) is lit up once an hour to send some data read on Mate3 to http://www.lsdx.eu/GPV_ZSDX .
But that damnd Ethernet cable out of Mate3 is only erraticaly recognized by Mate3 so the result is rather poor (totay at 18:57 Europe only one hour received)
??? I am on the latest firmware version Anyone would have a 2012 version which did work???
??? I reboot auto once evey 24Hrs. Is there a way to reboot inside my script???
??? Are users of Mate3S satisfied on the particular issue

Thanks for any tip

Hi everybody from over the Atlantic!

To solve this communication issue, anyone has tested Mate3S.
I am ready to make the expense, provided I am sure that it works properly

Hello every one, (aliens included)
Some information about my system:

It has been working pretty well this warm summer. We left 2 week ago and it is getting cold up there (10-15°) and Mate3 is again badly sputtering (1 transmission yesterday Sept 9th against a normal 24 a day). As my Mate3 did not work at all last winter I wonder whether the low temperature would be an element to aggravates that behavior. Next time I come up there (next week) I shall try to keep it warm somehow (a light bulb?) .

Unless the absence of the boss is destabilizing the whole gimmick but its unlikely because whene I am around I don't fool around on my system, rather more fox and rabbit and marmots and deer watching.

Still waiting for some sort of encouragement to try Mate3S at my own expense ....
Good luck to all.

Apparently, you haven't read, or answered, your inbox since July 7th, 2017 either. =D>

The forum is still here and I don;t see them still running it if OB all ran away. ](*,)
...but nothing from OB would / wouldn't surprise me, now.
