Sunday night between 9PM and 1AM (or later), Kurt Jackson, W1OBQ will be climbing the WCVB microwave tower behind You-do-it electronics to the 1000ft level.  No elevator, just climb the hard it way.

If you want to listen in and have a scanner, he will be operating on the 450.4125 MHz which is normally the WCVB chopper freq repeater.

Climb #1 on Sunday will be to fix a bad copper control line and take up microwave gear to be installed on the next climb.  The microwave gear will be in backpacks.

Climb #2 is tba as two TV and one FM station again need to go dark for RF safety reasons. The will be to install the gear that went up in climb #1.
