420 blu Hardware - Instrument 2014-11-01 00:00:00 2015-03-20 00:00:00 The 10cm and 15cm probes are reporting invalid data. Soil probes fixed.
398 blu Communication - Cellular 2014-08-03 21:00:00 2014-08-14 00:00:00 Can reach router okay but cannot reach datalogger. Update 8/19/14. Issue resolved on it's own. Most likely a loose connection between router and data logger. Suggest to tension the connections or replace. Replaced cable and connectors.
375 blu Hardware - Instrument 2014-04-02 20:00:00 2014-04-06 16:00:00 Datalogger service unable to connect to datalogger Moved datalogger serial connection to Router. Using loggernet utilities to connect.
377 blu Hardware - Instrument 2014-04-01 00:00:00 2014-05-01 00:00:00 Intermittent comm issues with Hot Plate. Hot Plate removed for season.

101 blu Hardware - Instrument 2011-03-01 22:00:00 2011-03-01 23:10:00 Met One Tipping Bucket gauge was replaced with F5708. Gauge was replaced b/c of under-reporting when compared to the hot plate indicated. The Rain gauge was not faulty. New rain gauge also reported 1/2 the rain amount compared to the HP. Could be a problem with the HP.
27 blu Hardware - Instrument 2011-01-14 01:00:00 2011-01-22 01:00:00 Communications between PC and datalogger are intermittent. PC serial port OK. Datalogger battery voltage OK. Possible issue with either datalogger, communication cable, or RAD modems. Previous replacement of datalogger did not solve the problem. Replaced modem on Datalogger.
