 OK, I think I understand your system topography. I do a similar thing here
connecting to a distant repeater where there is no Internet. I think we can
eliminate your repeater or its RF link. The problem appears to be in your
system itself if you are getting dropouts from the Internet. So I
understand your problem better, are you also hearing problems from local
telemetry. That is when you play the time (*81 or *82) Does it sound
correct? You mentioned connect/disconnect messages. Are you hearing them

I may want to log into your system if we can't resolve this. Is your ssh
forwarded in your router? I would need the node number and your login
password privately.
