    In a group call earlier this week – including some authors here – we touched upon Sontek quality control which, to be brutally honest, has often fallen well short of what it ought to be. FlowTrackers were not mentioned, but are clearly not being built to the standard one should expect.

    How can this group more effectively address these issues?

    Here’s a summary of issues I am currently aware of:

    • M9 comms – unreliable (even after all these years!)
    • RS5 comms – poor range
    • FT2 – the above issues
    • SLs – high failure rates (the last I heard was a few years ago, as I am not close to this any more)
