MVHS Updates

The MVMA crew was out today updating the Miami Valley Hospital South (MVHS) nodes. Chuck Gelm, NC8Q, Bill Curtice, WA8APB, and John Westerkamp, W8LRJ, were on the roof of the hospital adding a new large high-power dish to connect from MVHS to the KF8J tower in North Xenia. While we were there, we fixed the support masts which had shifted and re-aimed several of the dishes. Next week we will be working at the KF8J tower to replace the dead DARA node and re-aim the node pointed at MVHS. When completed, MVMA will finally have a high-speed RF link between Greene and Montgomery counties.
