Any AM guys out there? We have an AM 4 tower directional array. For the first time in my 4 years here, two foggy mornings in a row affected adversely tower 3, the negative tower in the night pattern, but strangely, it had no affect on the tuning parameters of the others that I would normally see if it was really out of tune.

I cleaned up all vegetation around the towers just in case, checked and cleaned the relays, checked other connections but could not see anything obvious. It's running perfect otherwise and I am not sure how to reproduce the problem.

Any ideas?
