Michele and Scott drove from San Francisco, arriving Friday morning.
Our modest effort has outgrown the Van + Jeep combination, so we added a ten-foot U-Haul truck.
The six-foot table fit perfectly, sideways against the forward wall.
It took 20 hours of hard work to get all of the TV station decals off without damaging the paint.
The traditional Friday Night BBQ
That's one huge steak for me.
Under a dreary sky, the 6m station in the van is assembled first on Saturday morning
Then the 6m beam bracket is attached above the rotator.
An umbrella stand sitting on the truck roof holds antennas for 432 and 1296.
Finally, the sun came out at Coastal Peak Park, nine miles from our home
The generator in the van fed power to the truck and the Jeep
All of the radios for the truck were assembled and tested at home.
That, however, did not keep failures from occurring...
