Hello All,

Today, I was able to remove the damaged R8 and replace it with a short piece of 
1 1/2" pipe, this is to accept a temporary rotor for the 50 and 220MHz yagis.
The R8 debris are laying on the ground behind the clubhouse and between the 
extra towers.

I also carefully removed the LP from the portable tower, protecting the coax 
and it's watertight seals. It is secured on the clubhouse roof.
The 432, 902 and 1296 yagis have been temporarily installed on the portable 

Testing of the systems will start this week.

The contest starts on Saturday morning at 11:00am and runs until 20:00 Sunday 
evening.  I encourage all SARC members to come on out and operate. There will 
be plenty to do.
You don't need a VHF/UHF SSB/CW radio to operate.  We will have a station on 
145.00MHz FM, so give us a call and some extra points.
