    My stations as described above have been working fine for 3 years in the field.  I’ve had a few components fail (12-5v buck converter, XBee daughter card, resistor divider) but otherwise very stable.

    However, one Mayfly (0.5b) seems to be performing fine with 2 exceptions:

    • the red LED3 is either solid ON or dim
    • the ADC that records the 12v battery voltage across a resistor divider is a bit flaky

    Is this a problem?  I can’t understand from the logic diagrams what would turn on/off red LED3.
