Site clean up work party August 31
Many thanks to the group that went to the site Saturday to secure the guy ends and do a site clean up.
Left to right Jack WA7SDV, Dick N7ZH, Jody N7ERT and Kathy N7MTH attending to the securing of the guy ends. The
ends have to be secured so they don't rattle against themselves when the wind is blowing. They cause noise in the receiver.
There was some recreating going on too. Here is Mrs. Misener, Dick N7ZH XYL.
