Round trip to Eggardon Hill

G0ROZ-3 stopped working on Wednesday morning. Due to problems with the car, I was not able to go to site until today. They have moved the keys for the site from Dorchester to HQ, so I had to go to Winfrith to collect the keys, then to Eggardon Hill, then back to Winfrith and then home.
The problem with G0ROZ-3 was just an error opening the COM port again. A quick re-boot solved the problem.
Looks like I need more UPS power to stop this happening again.

M1ABD stopped working

M1ABD vanished from the map on Friday 10th April. showed the last beacon was sent just after 0700 Hours. Due to local problems, which have now been resolved, I was not able to visit the site until today (13 April).
Once again the computer had locked up and required me to turn of the power before it would reboot. This is the only computer I get this problem with now. Looks like I will have to set up another computer and see if it makes any difference.
Anyway, M1ABD is working again and all is well with the world!
