We have Broadcast Tools switchers to select which studio goes to which
airchain (giving us the flexibility to put a production studio on-air, or
simulcast instantly if needed), and occasionally when the power blips it
will come up in a random position, even though defaults are programmed.
The UPSs keep the automation & transmitter controls running, don't think
this is on one (NOTE TO SELF: check into that)
