Subject: PMC card is working 

When I showed Frank that the card did not work, I mentioned that I got electric shock when I connected high voltage input to the card.

Frank realized that it happens only when the connector is not grounded, and it was not. The ground connection from HVin to the card

was broken, It's hard to see unless I touched the wire that connected the board to the female BNC on the panel. I replaced that rigid wire by a flexible wire.

Now the PMC card is working fine, and the original PA85 might not be broken at all.
