Re: AO-16. Is the sent telemetry correct?



Miguel,
The 10V bus voltage measurement in the BCR (channel 0x10) never has been 
equal to the sum of the battery voltages.  The 10V measurement in the 
receiver has generally been closer to the sum of the batteries and is the 
one we consider more accurate.  Additionally one of the battery voltages 
has always been suspect, if I remember it was bat 6.  We believe these 
differences were due to small calibration errors that add up when you sum 
the battery voltages.

However, it's entirely possibly that some measurements have gone 
bad.  These birds are almost exactly 12 years old now.
