I still cannot stream. The RPi isn't even taking pictures. ps aux shows that it is running repeat_10m.py
The following error shows: [rtsp @ 0000000006124a0] method DESCRIBE failed: 500 Server error rtsp://192.168.1.3:8554/: Server returned 5XX Server Error reply pipe: could not find codec parameters
The Ubiquity modems are communicating I can talk via Bitwise to the RPi There's excellent ethernet (100MB/s and BW >10MB) I've reimaged the SD card, replaced the RPi and camera, have the correct RTMP key
I don't know where else to look.... Where did I go wrong?

If you are using version 1.X cameras on the RPi you can see when it is recording video by looking at the red led on the front of the camera. If getting a new sd card solved your problem then it probably was on the Raspberry Pi side of things. You can also plug your Raspberry Pi into a Monitor and keyboard to check its processes.
ps aux | grep raspivid
will show 2 or more lines confirming that this is running, if all you get back after typing this in is just a single line then the camera is not on. This could be because of a host of different reasons but most common is a loose cable somewhere or the card has been corrupted.

@meggr you should not have the -b:V 3M before -f flv. When calling -vcodec copy, this tells ffmpeg not to encode the video, but rather copy the already encoded frames. -b:v is telling ffmepg the opposite (to encode the video)
