Q: If a ‘remote’ SD radio fails between polls or is ‘bouncing’ between polls – does PNE get a view of this activity?

A: No.  PulseNET only gets information during that moment in time that it did the poll.  For example, if we poll at 1:00 PM and all was well, then between 1:01 to 1:05 PM the network bounces down and back up and then at 1:20 PM we check again, PNE would report all is well.

The only way to catch those is to set alerts in the SD and/or shorten your polling periods.
