2007 1/25/2007 12:00 AM 1/1/2008 12:00 AM The antennas at the site washed out due to high water on Nov 6, 2006. Antennas #1 and #3 were reinstalled on Jan. 25, and antenna #2 was reinstalled on Jan. 30, 2007.
2006 1/1/2006 12:00 AM 11/6/2006 6:00 AM High water washed the antennas at AB1 out on 1/10/06. Antenna 2 blew out at ~12:00 AM and antennas 1 & 3 blew out at ~5:00 AM. The site returned to service on 3/24 a little after 16:30. The antennas at the site washed out due to high water on Nov 6, 2006 at 0600.

2004 1/1/2004 12:00 AM 1/1/2005 12:00 AM Antennas #2 & #3 were blown out, and antenna #1 was electrically disconnected on Jan. 28 due to high water. Antenna #1 was reconnected on Feb. 2, and antennas #2 and #3 were re-installed on Feb. 10. Numerous ORPHAN records, tag misreads, and misconfigured coil IDs are present in the raw data between July 21 and August 16, most likely the result of errors on the RS-232 channel of the new multiplex transceiver. The problem seems to have disappeared with the replacement of the fiber->RS-232 converter on August 16.
