Default Getting cut off mid flight ... Can you take a look ?

I have been using a Micro Trak 3 for the last year and it has been reporting pretty faithfully. I took it out of the airplane for a couple of months and then put it back in last week and took two test flights.

On both of those flights, it tracked for about 15 minutes and then just cut off, at least that is what is showing on APRS.fi. It almost looks like someone cut me off or perhaps it just shut down itself.

You can see the track on the APRS.fi site using tail number N796TS. I was wondering if someone could look at the telemetry and see if there is anything that stands out. I just barely passed the test so analysis is beyond me

I had an issue like this. The power cord vibrated loose from the box. A couple of zip ties fixed it.

Power interruption likely. Had similar experience couple years ago.
