For some reason my main radmon counter just gave up sending the cpm to the pc. I'm not sure why, but I suspect the wireless serial transmitter or receiver as the counter was working OK and Radlog also. Seems to be back up now after power cycling the counter off and reconnecting the receiver.

Mine dropped out as well, a reboot didn't solved it, had to suddenly reflash. The webinterface worked and all metrics were going nicely, but the uploads wouldn't work.
Mabye a coincidence, but there's a heightened solar (flare) activity that might have caused it?

Any other stations had/having issues? :)

I think that's just a coincidence both our counters failing around the same time. I've not noticed anything unusual with any other stations.

My main counter is a NetIO GC-10 and uses a PC with Radlog for recording. It's not an MCU. The data path goes like this: GC-10 <--> wireless TTL transceiver <--> wireless TTL transceiver <--> FTDI adaptor <--> PC/Radlog. When I checked before power cycling the GC-10 was displaying CPM properly on it's display and Radlog was actually receiving 0's. The PC wasn't rebooted, nor even Radlog shut down, so wasn't the PC end either. It has also done this before one of two times. I suspect something with the wireless TTL TX/RX. It may have been the GC-10 putting out 0's, but that is doubtful in my mind as the GC-10 has proven to be very reliable and robust. All in all, I think not too bad considering the counter has been running solid for 8 years. I'd give it a 99% uptime.
