I set up 8 Foscam FI9805W at one of my work locations.  They seem to do well
for the money.
They might be good enough. 

Also, you might want to check if your issues correlate to the train traffic
to your east.

Subject: [olug] OT: Recommendations for a GOOD Outdoor Camera?

Ive been setting up some instrumentation at work to assist in deducing
whether some errors I get via microwave is caused by meaty flesh transiting
the sky or from source propagation point(in which I have no metrics).

Ive decided that I want to setup a nice camera to observe as much of the
visible path as possible.

Sure are alot of cameras out there, but many will not fit the bill.

This is going to have alot of direct sunlight.
Needs to also be sensitive to IR at night.(not thermal but would be cool)
Need to make sure cmos sensors or PSU does not induce
interference.(squeeling switched PSUs for example) IP out, I prefer MPEG2
but I know it going to be h264.

Budget is not of concern.

Anyone got anything off the top of their head?
I was thinking that I may have to get two cams where each is specific to
night or daylight operation and figure out the automation later.
