To the Braintrust:

I'm noticing somewhat frequent "blurps" (like lost packets; brief audio dropouts, with brief blip noises) in our SRN News feeds. There will be anywhere from 0 to 4 "blurps" in any given newscast. We typically air 3 or 4 minutes of SRN News.

I checked the 1 minute logs of both our AMBOS AMR-100 receivers, and they show zero bad blocks throughout the "blurped" newscast. (We take the news "live" from the U4K)

I'm starting to wonder if this is a symptom of our "elderly" U4K starting to break down, or if there are others noticing this same issue.

If our U4K is failing, then I should plan to transition to one of the AMR-100's for the SRN News. (SNN)
