WTF, last reading I saw was on 11/16/13. No readings all day yesterday nor this morning and now the plug has been pulled on this station.
Anyone?

Chart members have access to view inactive stations. An inactive station is any station (private, EPA or any other station) that has not received new data in a certain time period. I believe it is a 24 time period, but do not quote me on that. After a station goes inactive, it disappears from the public view and even from the "Chart Members RAD Map" but using the tab option (on right hand side of chart member RAD map screen) a paying chart member can view that inactive station and all of its previous data. Of course when a station is inactive, no new data is available for view. The station you are speaking of is an EPA gamma that NETC displays the RADNET channel 5 gamma energy range from. I just looked and it was last updated:

NETC can not control when a station goes offline or when they decide to go back online. It is not uncommon to see an EPA station go offline and return days or weeks later. This is why we can not trust that the EPA stations will be available should an EMERGENCY happen. We need more private sites and if you have $85 for a GMC-200, a Windows PC, 24/7 internet and you download the FREE NETC software then you have everything needed to setup a NETC station. Station operators can view their stations data through NETC for FREE. I hope this information helps.

Thanks King Cobra! That 11/16/13 reading was the last reading I viewed as well. We had 40-60 mph wind gusts here in KC the last few days, so hopefully it is just down for maintenance. I thank you for your reply. God Bless!

King Cobra - I guess I did not read your full reply. Where can I purchase the GMC-200 for $85? Is that the best deal for budget minded individual?

I believe it is a great deal for a budget minded person. If you put it outside like I do, you do not want to spend anymore than needed since you/I risk trashing it leaving it outside. NETC sells the GMC-200 or you can order it from GQ Electronics too:

I also own the GMC-300 but they do not sell that exact model anymore. The newer models look like my GMC-300 and I understand are the same but better and might be worth a serious look too for the price:

I believe the Raspberry Pi is a MUST have with the custom software from NETC. The available features and stuff with it are great. I have wanted to do a review but have not got around to it, I do not make/have the time to do a review that does it justice. I believe you would be very happy with it.

In addition I just paid you the higher rate a week after paying you the $9 rate. I emailed you a couple of times to ask if I could upgrade or just take back my 9$ initial fee but have no responses. Please remove my paypal from your auto renewal on my $9 plan. For people who are volunteering to put up a monitoring station should be given an upgrade offer if they already were a member. Just a suggestion.

the deal was if you bought a PI/gmc package from Netc. The PI ID would have free chart membership if I stays active. What is your Pi/id the was tape on the PI box? Did you buy the Package?
