    198 Airspan base stations with defects, and their current status: [[BR]]
    199  *  Michigan 1:  Sent with RMA after power accident/fault;  Received with power fixed, but RF transmitters reporting Fault; client connection fails; 3/27: actively debugging with Airspan technical support who has remote access to the base station
    200  *  Clemson 1: short outage due to GPS unit corrosion - replaced GPS and back to normal.
    201  *  Clemson 2: failed on first boot; went through circular debug-RMA request-debug-RMA request; 3/18:  Airspan examined remotely, and confirmed problem needing RMA, and offered to advance ship a replacement, while Clemson returns unit. 
    202  *  Clemson 3: high loss when connected to Netspan, waiting for new GPS receiver, then proceed to Airspan debug
    203 
    204 Technical tickets:  Manu has an account, track all open tickets.
    205 Airspan has remote access:  Michigan 1;  Clemson 2 (more?)
    206 
    207 RMA process:  Typically Manu starts, site continues, and Airspan approves;  then site ships back;  who pays for shipping when there is an Airspan fault?
    208 Approximate shipping costs:  $300
    209 
    210 Next steps:  [[BR]]
    211  *  Review with Airspan ASAP, and define steps and schedule to be on-the-air soon, e.g., by end of April.
