Update on Progress

Things have been going well. The UHF transmitter has been constructed and can put a signal out from Mountain View. The next step is to get a few more 12 volt batteries to store power from the solar panels, since we can go for many days with very little sun.

We’ll be testing the signal on and off, so you might catch us on air briefly. Let us know if you do!

If everything goes well, we could fairly easily put up our VHF transmitter. One of the main factors is to make sure we have enough headroom in the battery charge.
