Summary of suits and radios:
Headset #3 (previously erroneously reported as #4 and #1 – sorry for this repeated error on the headset number. This time it’s 100% sure headset #3 is affected by a connection failure). Testing was done today, using several headsets and radios, mixing headsets and radios. It was discovered that the double jack connector is faulty. When the double jack connector is connected without applying any pressure to the connector, the microphone works. However, when an upward pressure is applied to the connector, the microphone does not work. This headset has been set aside and labeled as such.
Failed helmet has been set aside and labeled as such.
