    According to the FPS at workshop last night PG has not been signed off on yet but expected any day. I bet we miss the 12th opening date predicated.

    Default Opening day

    may have come for baseball, but rep from Senator Milkulski's office told us tonight at the grant class that opening day is still about a month away. PG should be out in about two weeks...at least that's what he said the Senator's office has been told..who knows

    We need a prize (and a bump)

    Tell you what I am going to do...

    I have available about 60 miles of rope. All on 1200 foot rolls. Maybe about 70 miles.

    3/8 inch polypropoline. Yellow or black.

    I have been slowly selling this stuff, but for the lucky winner of the pool, you get a roll!

    (100.00 value, really more but I have discounted to move it)

    I will even ship it to you.

    WHAT A PRIZE!

    Thats a 1200 foot long spool of rope! FREE!

    Ok, I am tired, but what the heck, it adds something to the pool!

    Someone's been putting in fibre optic cable as I guessing this is where rope come from. Contractors can only use it once.

    That may have been the intent - but this stuff has never been used. Brand new in the box.

    It did come from a major telecom provider that I do a lot of business with.... I wondered why they had so much.

    All good choices. Come to think of it, mine could use replacing as well.

    I hate to say this, but late May or early June is looking awfully good right now.

    Should I post the dates taken and available again? I asked myself if the pool was for program guidance or opening date? I think I'll ask one of Obama's choices for the bench.

    June 2, Jam. I want that rope that LVFD put up and since Kurt put up a free seat in one of his classes for the winner this pool is beginning to get interesting. ďJust jokingĒ
    Hey Blake, A few questions for you. Donít you think it will be more communication grants awarded this year? I mean somebody has to help these departments that canít afford one new radio and sure canít replace all they have. Since I will be opening our bids tomorrow for the departmentís new P-25 system I feel very lucky that we got funding when we did or we would be in the same boat they are. We will be breaking new ground for the county with the first P-25 system up and working.
    I ask some other departments around me what are they going to do, they just said they will unplug the radios and do without. You know as well as I do they want because a department without communications is a department out of service. We still have some departments using the old 100 kHz tube type radios built in the late 60ís and early 70ís. The FCC put this mandate on us without funding and the higher ups in the food chain surely knows most canít afford it. But on the other hand everyone knew it was coming for almost 10 years and never planned for it. So what do you think? Will AFG put a little more money in pot for the 2013 thing thatís coming?
    I have one more question that only a radio man can answer. If you have lots of 7/8 feed line can you run two 7/8 to the antenna to help decrease your loss and would it have to be exactly the same length? Would it be worth the trouble? Around 250 ft run. Thanks again for looking over the bid specís for me. I did make some changes like a performance clause and a few other things. Canít wait to get it up and going.

    Oh man Kurt is going to kill me. I was just picking at him. Half what I say is a lie and the other half you can't believe.
