North ant north half wire broken: fixed 14:02 UT.
Lifted up and tied east arm of East ant. Lifted up and tied north end of s (new s) ant.

Removed Ailtech #1 mainframe. RF module #5 removed from Ailtech#1 and put in
mainframe#2. Still poor noise.
Try synth#5 with RF#3. Still poor. Noted that IF module ch2 8dB LED never lights,
even in local mode. Removed IF module (#17) and put in spare from Lycksele sounder "5-516".
Still poor behaviour.

Stop sounding ca. 15:49 UT. But PC (DOS) clock is wrong, at 15:50:30 UT
it shows 15:37:01 so it is 13 min 29 secs slow. Run stettime.bat at 15:51:24 UT
Removed Lycksele ch2 IF module '5-516' and try Lycksele module '4-5 R1'. No better
so change IIFA from 8 to 16dB in BP2N.CFG and AGCC to 0 from 1. That is, leave it
sounding with fixed attenuation.

Put repaired IF module (#17) with new attenuators back in R2. Still poor
AGC behaviour with high noise level so set AGCC=0 manual to 8+8 dB.
