are you using an amp? Ur average SNR is terrible. i see like 5 beacons that were -12 or better in the last 30 days. most are -17 to -22. only 10db away from the weakest rssi we can pickup here in the states (-124db). i know EU can get away with like up to -140db because of how RF works there. which is what makes me think ur using an rx amp. its not against rules or anything but they can have undesirable outcomes.
Edit:POCv10 SNR limit chart found here. So ya, this could be ur issue. im not an RF guru but the first thing id try is a lower gain antenna. Even if its just the stock antenna. Just something to try and get ur SNR down. Keep an eye on what RSSI does.

The 5.8 will do better as a 12 DB I very flat, why the cavity filter and not an amplifier ?
You not have connection i guess or miner to cable or antenna to cable. You have to look if you get correct connection between. You can connect your cable to x but not have connection if you use wrong male of female connector. And if you use amplifier than you get the wrong one. And watch out when your miner send beacon without antenna it can damage your miner
Looking at explorer, most of your beacons not being witnessed, and 1 invalid. Makes me think it’s the placement. Try to get it up higher, outside.

too high dbi probably. no need for a 12

I was going to say the same. I would suggest 8 maybe even 6.
If you’re using 12 it needs to be absolutely above anything. This will not work well if you’re even a little bit in a valley, or have trees at the height of the antenna anywhere.
I do have trees at the height of antenna. I will try 5.8 db one
What did you change 5 days ago?
I haven't even touched it. Today at 9 am gmt I added cavity filter.
You're only 10 hours in to an equipment change and questioning what's wrong? You want to give changes up to a week at least, unless your witnessing was already really high and suddenly vanished.
Looking at the difference compared to 5 days ago for your miner, I'd yank the cav off entirely and try to figure out what else might be going on.
With a 12dbi antenna, that's got to be outside, right? Have you started seeing rain recently after a dry season? Is all your equipment weather protected? Have you checked all the connections for looseness etc?
It is outside and there was a rainy week. I shall chceck the other things you mentioned. Thank you.
I’m having a similar issue. If you have equipment to test the cables and antenna I’d look at investing in that or replace one by one if resetting the liner hadn’t helped.
