Hi Folks,

We have a new listserve, so you can get project updates sent right to your very own computer. You can sign up by following the link below right.

A bit of an update: I've been analyzing the parts of a shortwave antenna, that's been around the farm for awhile, to decide what other parts we need to reconfigure it to make the bottom of the new tower we're building in La Esperanza. If anyone wants to help out with spreading out wires, measuring, and cleaning give me a call. 762-9561 or cell 649-9085.

We're going to be doing some workdays to give anyone who wants to help out with physical stuff an opportunity. --- This week, it's all day Saturday, June 9, next week, we'll be here all day Monday, June 11. --- There's work for every skill level - scanning manuals into the computer. cleaning and painting, rebuilding equipment, analyzing computers, doing research, asking businesses for donations, etc. Call or email, or comment to this posting for directions, carpooling and to RSVP, so I know how many to expect. There's also some stuff that can be done in the comfort of your own home, online or on the phone.

The last components for retuning the transmitters just came in, so we'll start testing those shortly. Anyone wanting {increasingly rare] experience with AM transmitters is welcome to join in.

Peace, Bill
