NodeLuckyLab -- MR24 bug was discovered and resolved, involved cold booting and phy configuration. Also, saw some of the several second outages (2-5) relating to ethernet pause frames triggering a bug in the mt7621 switch and causing resets, we might switch back to the Alix to resolve them.
NodeWygant and NodeSechzig are both down since June 13 at 2:30-ish a.m. Green Keys Property Management has been informed, but the problem is not yet resolved. Furthermore, Gail claims that Carl has decided to discontinue the free wifi service, suggesting tenants get their own service themselves. I have not heard that directly from Carl. This would impact all the VZA Homes networks, if true.
NodeC3PO -- got reports of problems over the weekend, Russell has been asking for photos to help diagnose the problems (which include: damage to the ethernet run across the street; and some possible water damage to the AP in the south village). Remote monitoring indicate that even if the ethernet run is damaged, it seems to still be working (it trains at a gigabit to the AP, which implies all 8 wires are intact). Remote monitoring also indicates that people (currently 9) are able to connect to the AP, so whatever damage the might be (water?) it isn't completely fatal.
Ubiquiti PowerBeam M5 400 feedhorn was obtained to sacrifice for the test bed. It appears that the case is glued shut. To reach the serial console, a strategically drilled hole and long probe wires would be perhaps the most practical method.
OpenWrt support patch (v4) for the PBE-M5-400 is still awaiting merging.

NodeC3PO - issue reported, but not confirmed, still requesting photos so we know what to bring for resolution,
NodeWygant and NodeSechzig - down, likely billing, but property management company suggests VZA is getting rid of free wifi per Carl, no confirmation from Carl but tenants likely signed up for free wifi
Russell has Ubiquiti PowerBeam M5 400 that will be probed, hermetically sealed
