Taking A Ride475 viewsAfter Antenna #2 was cleaned and lubed, it was used to carry traffic for Antenna #1 while it was cleaned. Then it was moved to the East, to track the 307° Satellite in place of Antenna #3 while it was cleaned up.

Skeleton469 viewsLarge birds had access to the RF Rooms via the Feed Tubes for quite some time. The rooms were littered with their droppings, as well as the carcasses and skeletons of their prey.

After the RF Room was cleaned, the Feed Tube was sealed to keep the birds out.

453 viewsI was trying to re-create a photo that I have of my Father, Bob Westphal, in front of the nose of a B-17 in Europe during WWII. He was a Tech Sargent and repaired the radios in the planes. I hope to scan an image of that photo and place it here soon.

All Together Now451 viewsTaken 1/23/06
Strong winds buffeted Southern California last night and this morning causing wide spread damage. Fallen trees, downed power lines, etc. Sustained winds at my station were 30 mph with gusts as high as 42 mph. Combined with extremely low humidity, these conditions have prompted a Red Flag Fire Alert. These palm trees were all leaning to the South as the winds roared out of the North.
