[Nichin, Eric G]
As mentioned in Elog 10062, we found RF cables running between demodulators in rack 1Y2 and RF switch in 1Y1 to have bad SMA connectors (No shield / bad soldering / no caps).
we pulled out all the cables belonging to PD frequency response measurement system , 8 in total, and all of them about 5.5m in length.
Their labels read :
REFL33, REFL11, REFL55, AS55, POX11, REFL165, POP22 and POP110.
All of them are now sitting inside a plastic box in the contorl room.
On another note, instead of fixing all the cables ourselves, Steve and Eric G decided to order custom made RF cables from Pasternack as professionally soldered cables are worth it. We have placed an order for 2 cables (RG405-550CM) to check out and test them before we order all of the cables.
