    Shannon – thanks for your thoughtful reply.  I’m sure I’ll be able to find the problem now.  Answering your questions:

    1. I’m not switching D22 on.
    2. Humidity is a possibility. I’ll look for corrosion and add desiccant .
    3. I’ve had ants at another location but not this one…yet.
    4. I’ll make some tests as you suggest to isolate the problem.  It might be easiest to just replace the Mayfly/modem as this station is far from my home.  Then I can test the original equipment at home.

    I do have a Digi modem and adapter card at all my locations.  I plan to, but won’t be able to convert to new Mayfly and LTE BEE for another year as it will require substantial desk work – a winter job.
