At a recent Hughes HX installation the receive signal was good ( Signal = 91 ) but the terminal failed to transmit.

The fault was found and cured.  The TX F socket on the HX50 modem has been forcefully turned slightly and this had broken the internal connection from the centre of the F socket to the circuit board. Repaired and all now OK.

Note that when joining F connectors to Hughes HX equipment only finger tightness is necessary. Do not forcefully apply a spanner or wrench !

Best regards, Eric.
