From the Radiomarine newsletter-

Last minute preparations are under way for Night of Nights XI.

On Saturday at the Bolinas transmitter site Transmitter Supervisor Steve Hawes
tested and tuned the transmitters while Bill Ruck and volunteer Vern Wirka
braved the poison oak to clear the transmission lines of branches. Vern has come
all the way from Nebraska to spend Night of Nights with us and help wherever he
can. Today Paul Shinn will arrive at Bolinas to reinforce the staff there.
Paul has recently completed the repair of a RCA AR-88LF receiver which we may
put in service at an operating position at the receive site for Night of Nights.

Meanwhile at the receive site I've been busy programming receivers, testing
keying and laying out log sheets at the operating positions. We hope that the
land line teletype link between the transmit and receive sites my be
commissioned in time for Night of Nights, allowing us to have a proper and
historically correct order wire.

We hope you can join us on the air or in person on 12 July (13 July GMT) for
Night of Nights XI. For full details please see our Web site at
