I am not sure if I can make it to the next meeting on April 10.

I was looking at the Monterey Radiofest site and noticed you have a 
presentation there. If you are going through SLO with your truck maybe we can 

Also could you use the radials on the future 60' Vertical you mentioned before? 
 I am not sure where you are planning on putting the vertical.  As I remember 
the area by the remote is heavily covered with brush.  

If there is no foot traffic there I would think It would be much easier just to 
lay the radials on top of the ground after the grass or brush has been cut 
short.   From past experience a tractor mower never damaged any radials on two 
large radial systems I built : http://www.ac6dd.com/cuesta/cuesta.htm
The brush and grass would get maybe 3-4 feet tall, than they would cut it quite 
short.  Most of the radials just kind of blended into the grass and dirt after 
a few years. They are probably all still there.
