Wanted to join the @G5BK new year's net, so went to the aprs radio in the shed (only 2m radio I have set up with a proper aerial) only to find the microphone appears to be dead.

No lights, no response on the radio to button pressing.

It's about 5 Celsius in there, so maybe it hasn't enjoyed prolonged exposure to cold?

Oh well, I hope to get more equipment on the air this year, so hopefully I'll be able to take part next time!


as far as I can tell it is still working on aprs and txing OK, so probably microphone specific issue.
