13Sep02, ~14:00 MDT

CSAT up.  At least it still was ~1.5 hours after doing the work.
It was still down upon arrival. Power cycled everything first (see
below) but it was still not coming in despite second
power cycle on the serializer.   When jumpered directly using
a different cable, the sonic responded and I could re-set it to 10hz.
Replaced serializer; then power cycled to make sure both came up OK.

Charge controller (and thus low-voltage-disconnect) and tiny 7AH battery
added.  I checked that the battery was getting charged and able to run
station by itself as well.

The CSAT3 at 1m at station 1 is not working properly.  I am quite
sure it was generating good data after I powered up the station today,
but within the first hour EVE no longer reported data from it.

The CSAT3 command shows all NAs, and no csat data is coming
through fastout.

I tried several things, none of
which helped:
	power cycled the serializer several times
	power cycled eve
	power cycled the serializer again
	power cycled the sonic
	blew out some moisture from the front panel connector

If you do a talk to it from eve, it is transmitting binary
gibberish as it should, but somehow eve is not recognizing the
records.  It is as if it isn't sending the end-of-record bytes.

Using these commands:
it replies:

The only thing I know to look for is RS=1, which is correct.

To restart it, did:

It started spewing data, but EVE is not recognizing it.
