Intermittent loss of comms with radio
Set up is Flex 6500, Maestro, Computer W10, Network switch connected to radio, computer and Maestro and linked back to Router.
I am experiencing intermittent loss of comms with radio.
In an effort to isolate the problem I have eliminated the network switch and separately tried connecting the radio directly to the computer and then to the Maestro using a different CAT cable each time. The fault happens under both options.
At some indeterminate interval, half an hour, an hour or more, I note the AF start to break up then the green light on the front of the radio begins to flash and my call sign entered in the window on the radio front panel goes out then reappears after which the green light continues to flash then become continuous as normal indicating the radio is ready for use again. The Maestro will freeze or change back to the starting screen showing the radio ready to reconnect. The computer seems to re-establish itself but shows an error message stating that the computer and radio have lost communication. it is impossible to send any proper CW however, just garbage.
From these tests the radio seems to be the common factor but would appreciate advice on any further tests, checks or front panel display readings that I can do to establish the cause.
