PSMSFC was on site to investigate transceiver 02 not firing its timer tag. We figured that a UPS or transceiver had failed but when I arrived I found that the transceiver was in "standby" mode. After digging into the raw files it appears that the reader had been placed into "standby" mode from the front panel at 02:39. I cannot confirm that this is what happened but do not have any other explanation. We will continue to monitor to see if this is possibly a transceiver issue.

Checked and tuned transceivers.

06, 07, and 09 are noisy. Tried replacing transceivers  07 and 09 with no improvement. Probable failing antenna or antenna cable. 06 is definitely a failed antenna or cable.
