This topic interests me because my mast
top B&G AWI has started to go intermittent and stop sending data. I've yet to go up the mast
and do a proper inspection
.... but I noticed that if I give the mast a good shake... with a halyard
or the back stay I can get the AWI to begin to spew out some *pulses*... and it may actually then begin to work. To me this rules out any upstream of the AWI or the connection which is what I suspect and hope to be the problem.
But then the issue is how does one go about cleaning
those sort of small male female pin type connectors... especially when half of them are up at the top of the mast?
I am about to get up there for a look see and I suspect if the male pins show some corrosion, the females will as well.
I may write to B&G and ask for some guidance / suggestions... but perhaps the collective wisdom of CF will do the job.
