Fixing recording system

After recovering the monitoring acoustic equipment from the light house at Qaqqaliaq we have been working on re-stablishing it. We tested the equipment at the Arctic Station and found out that there was a failure in the system.

Many tap tests on the equipment have been performed to identify where the failure was coming from as well as to make sure that all the elements of the recording system work perfectly before bringing it back to the light house. It was a relief to finally find out the failure came from a fuse that needed to be changed.
