Good morning Joe.....Thank you for the latest info on the Net News...
WE appreciate your endeavors.  Here, we have almost completed moving 
the sucking motor outside the shop for cooling the final on 1296,  
and to move all that noise outside !  Presently we have a quad dipole 
in the shop and can hear you guys on 14345.  When Bruce, K0YW, has his 
Beam pointed this way he is an S7, and he hears me S5.  The plans are 
to have a 4 el. Quad fixed on the ground pointed your way.  We cannot 
have another Tower on our  city property.  When we complete the work 
on the sucking motor, we need  to get the new software from F!EHN 
working with the new encoders for AZ and EL, and install Darrells 
Control box.  So we are plugging along nicely, enjoying this good WX 
for working outside.  Have a Happy New Year.  Keep up the good work.
