If you take out those two screws that hold the piece in behind the south pointing solar panel, (to the right in pic) there is a board under it with a capacitor. This is where I found my issue on the Atlas I have that dropped signal on the Access out of sunlight. Apparently there is a poor connection on that board. I fiddled with it, and now my signal isn't dropping out permanently, but is still missing some transmissions...

What I need to do is swap rain buckets and see if the issue goes away entirely.

Ya know my original first run Atlas would drop power and shut down and somebody, maybe you, mentioned that memory cap. I had already ordered a new sensor and the original Atlas is in its box in my shed. Now that I see that picture I can tear it down someday and see if it needs to be resoldered. Hopefully your still active and see this but I doubt I'm going to dig it out soon but now I know what to check [tup]

RIP, @nincehelser.....  :-(
