7/10/2020 8:20:33 AM General Mill Creek Division has been temporarily un-installed due to COE work on the ladder starting on 7/6/20.
2/1/2018 1:31:48 PM General I reset the time on the muxes at Bennington Division and Mill Creek Division.
1/17/2018 12:25:36 PM SiteUp Power was returned to Mill Creek on 1/17/18 at about 08:12 AM PST. The Bennington diversion site was active the entire time. Only the Mill Creek site was down.
1/17/2018 8:01:55 AM SiteDown Mill Creek Division lost power around 05:32 on 1/11/18. COE is looking into the issue.
8/26/2016 10:00:00 AM General Power was returned to Mill Creek Division on 8/26 at about 10:00 am.
8/16/2016 8:00:00 AM General Mill Creek Division lost power on 8/16 after 8:00 am PST. We are working on getting power restored to the enclosure. Bennington division mux is still running.
7/26/2016 1:04:00 PM General Power to Mill Creek Division returned on 7/26 at approximately 12:00 pm PST.
7/22/2016 10:16:00 AM General The lower mux at Mill Creek Division lost power on 7/22. We don't know why power was lost and will get it turned on as soon as possible. Bennington Division is still on.
11/2/2015 8:46:00 AM General Mill Creek Division lost power on Monday 11/2. Power was restored on 11/3. However, since power was restored, the noise on each antenna has been in the 90% range, so tag reading efficiency is probably quite low until we figure out the noise issue.
