Fresh from *Pat, N2IEN*, a status report on the *CY9C* operations from
I am sure most of you know that they have had high winds & sustained
antenna systems damage, here is Pat's update this morning:
//Subject: CY9C //
//Pete--an update on LEO. We've had some setbacks.
First, there were logistical issues getting people to this uninhabited
Island and dealing with setting up under difficult conditions. Then last
night a storm hit. Took out our EME array and knocked down the partially
assembled sat yagis. Our G5500 suffered some damage.
Not sure of its status; we're about to get some high winds again so we
put it away.
Soon as wx clears we'll test it. If it's toast, we might be able to use
the G5500 from the EME setup.
Worse comes to worse, I'll use the Arrow. Please pass this info on to
AMSAT members. //

This may or may not result in limited satellite operations.
