The images above reveal the repair and upgrading of the Greenwater (Area B) repeater antenna. Looks like the antenna may have taken a beating during the winter. Andy Osborn can be seen in the lower portion of the right image, at the tower 35ft level, installing one of three grounding devices required on the antenna coaxial cable to meet Motorola R-56 communications site standards.


The image to the left shows Andy installing the second grounding upgrade as mentioned above.
