Right, this is what I eventually figured out.  I didn't realize the reader
cables banched off to different points.  Once I found that and unplugged
the cable to the call control unit the problem went away, isolating the
problem to the reader.  I then removed the reader and examined it more
closely and saw the tine out of place.  How it got that way is beyond me.
