Work Day March 14

Not a lot to report in that we carried on cleaning and scraping down the rear of the T86 aerial system and Neil did battle with the radar floor.

The LCP is still U/S after the failure of a G6 60 Amp PS. We have three spare G6 60 Amp power supplies so not a problem to replace the faulty unit – I thought. Firstly the spare in the LCP failed after a few seconds and when I checked the other two spares at home, they were also U/S. The workshop spares were brand new units, one gave a puff of smoke and the other just didn’t do anything. Out of four dead power supplies it should be possible to get one running for next Saturday. Usual capacitors are suspect; these spares hadn’t been soak tested previously.
