to the power pairs in the cat-5, I'd say it's very likely that's the source of your ethernet errors. The run up the tower is coupling to the FM antenna and re-radiating all that RF back inside your nicely sealed enclosure system. Patrick Shoemaker Vector Data Systems LLC shoemak

The AM station's pattern has to be approved by the FCC, and any large nearby metal structures will become parasitic antennas and affect the radiation pattern. Patrick Shoemaker
