Action On May 5, 2006 a letter was issued to all consignees, via return receipt requested. The letter advised consignees of the issue and provided some ways to mitigate the risk. Anyone experiencing the anomaly is to document the failure and report it to the firm. A field service representative will visit each consignee to optimize the antenna system to reduce intermodulations. After determining the root cause and validating a fix, the firm issued a second letter dated August 21, 2006 to their consignees. The letter advised consignees of three issues that needed 'improvement' and stated a service engieneer will schedule a time to visit and install the improvements.
