Cable Modem Replaced

Around 12:15pm during yesterday’s severe thunderstorm that passed through the South Coast, the internet at the SEMARA clubhouse along with the repeaters’ IRLP nodes, APRS and the scanner feed all went offline.  It was determined today that the cable modem at SEMARA’s clubhouse suffered a power surge and went dead.  The Comcast SMC Business IP Gateway was replaced today by a Comcast technician around 2:00pm.  Special thanks to Marcel, W1MLD for going down to meet the technician at the clubhouse before I was able to join in.
