This is really funny.. Some bozo lit a firecracker right under the bsnl dp pole.. Now my attenuation and snr figures have switched places...Snr 6; attenuation 40since its Diwali no lineman on call.. Will have to wait :-(Sucks when you have to wait for bsnl guys to turn up..P.s. the carbon black from the cracker deposits on the open wire joint.. Hence the problem.. Btw.. Happy Diwali everyone!
