[HamWAN PSDR] Camp Murray install 7/20 and 7/27 - ground crew needed

I’m going to try to be down there between 7 and 7:30 to start unpacking and hauling stuff over to the tower.  We’ll need ropes if Bart doesn’t bring his.  Make sure we have hardhats.  A good general toolbox would be good in addition to the cable equipment.  We’re somewhat running blind on this one as I’ve only had one trip down to do a rudimentary inventory of the gear that was already there.  We’ll need to hook up with Bart and Bob to pick their brains on what was discussed/decided a year or two ago, formulate and execute from there.  Anything not do-able goes onto a “to do” list for me for the following weekend.


Thanks Carl for joining in.  We should be in pretty good shape for the 20th, but will be light on the 27th (so far).  Hopefully we can get the lion’s share done this weekend.

Carl, I would be happy to carpool with you.

Rob, when are you intending to get there?


I will be bringing some basic tools for assembly, cable crimping and testing, and a laptop or two with programming capabilities.

I can help this weekend only. I have Emergency Worker credentials from Seattle, and also have military credentials and (normal military) base access.


Doug, do you want to car pool? Or if you are already, can I join?


Do you need any additional items (tools, rope, etc.)?

Carl, N7KUW

Importance: High


Greetings all,


The next 2 Saturdays we will be installing (4) PTP dishes at Camp Murray.  This Saturday (7/20) Bart will be climbing and installing as much as we can.  Next Saturday Mike Ping will do the climbing to finish what we don’t get done this weekend.


We can use 2-3 people for additional ground crew both days.  Doug and I will be there on 7/20 and I will be there on 7/27 as Doug has prior commitments.


As most of you know Camp Murray is the State EOC and is a very important link for statewide EMCOMM entities.  It is also a great asset to have participating in the HamWAN network.


In order to volunteer you MUST be registered as a Washington State Emergency Worker – either through Camp Murray or your local City or County EOC.  You will need to send a copy of your Emergency Worker Card to our contact at Camp Murray prior to arriving on-site, and you must wear your credentials while you are there.  


We are planning to start at 8am and run through 5pm, possibly later depending on the climbers’ comfort and energy reserves.  I will be onsite this Saturday between 7 and 7:30 to start pulling gear out of storage.


If you hold an Emergency Worker card and can help on one or both weekends, please let me know.  I will put you in touch with our coordinator at Camp Murray so you can send your credentials.
