KC9QPM and N9IO displaying the patch panels they made for the two FT5ZM operating sites. The feedlines from the antennas will terminate at the panels. Transmit lines from the amplifiers will plug into these terminations. This makes changing antennas very easy and avoids having to find the right antenna lead when you want to change bands.
Jerry, WB9Z, hauled a load of coax, wire, and other Amsterdam Island DXpedition supplies to the recent SEDCO meeting. The material has been moved to our staging warehouse in Atlanta. It and material already at the warehouse will be made ready for shipment to New Zealand in mid October. Those in the photo from left to right are: K4MQG, N4GRN, K4UEE, WB9Z, and W3OA.
