We’ve had our 2nd F300-25 back haul failure due to water getting into the ethernet port. The first had obvious moisture in the jack, the 2nd had the classic greening and burnt pins. Curious if anyone else has encountered this? We’ve had multiple instances of heavy storms with high wind driven rains as well as heavy ice event during the year plus they have been deployed.
We will be replacing it with a CSM but still have a few F300-25 back hauls out there and I’m considering sealing the covers with a thin silicon layer to try and prevent the issue. We have a third F300-25t that may be experiencing the problem as we have had several unexplained ether0 drop outs in the last two weeks and we will be climbing this weekend to check it out. That is how the most recent failure started.
We have been using F300-CSM on our latest back hauls and will be replacing the current F300-25 radio with a CSM.
May try my hand at replacing the ethernet port on the radio myself.
