Lost AM Identity

Posted By John Rennekamp

I had been a very long time AM member with well over 100 5 star ratings. Recently I could no longer log in to AM and repeated emails and requests to verify my password were not answered. I rejoined under all the same user name, password, and email adress as before and it accepted me as a new member with no ratings. I have sent emails direct to AM and to a few moderators. No answer yet. Anyone know what I can do to get my history back? PLEASE HELP.

I just found out the main person who organizes this had an issue with his motorhome and will not be attending. The event will still take place but there may not be anyone there until Saturday afternoon in which a few of us plan to arrive then.

Problem with Ioptron HAZ 31

Posted By John Rennekamp

I just got a new HAZ 31 and out of the box it will not power up. I tried both a 12 volt power supply and the AC adapter and nothing happens. Also put a new battery in the hand controller and nothing at all.

Anyone else have similar issue?
