Jim, Skip, I believe that some files on the card are corrupted because of the power loss.
It is best to contact MFJ for a replacement card and start all over from scratch unfortunately.
When Skip get the new card he should clone the card onto another B4 B4 B4 (emphasized)
he does any settings changes. Just get a USB card reader/writer and some 32 gig cards
and clone the original onto at least 1 card. There is a clone utility built into the PI's OS
that makes this easy. After cloning put the original card away and only use the cloned card.
After all settings are done and B4 B4 B4 any passwords are changed, do another clone.
Put the B4 password card away with the original but label them accordingly.
Now with this other cloned card he can now change the password, when all done and
everything is working just fine and you guessed it, DO ANOTHER CLONE.
Every step along you have clones to fall back on, which means if a problem arises
like this one all he has to do is to put the previous card in and do a new clone
This will save a ton of time and frustration, backup to a backup to a backup.
The instructions are very lacking in this respect that came with the unit.
Use the corrupted card for the clone job then use this card keeping the other card
