Phone/data by Shawn in EM trailer and clubhouse. Logging software set up and utilized, all logging done and sent by close of FD.

Visit by Frank Maynard, Fall River EM on Saturday.

Sunday was easier, pile-ups less frequent, and our infrastructure was well in place.

Problems with SWR on HF trailer beam. Flat on ground, but the more it ws raised, the higher SWR became (?) tuner was adequate to operate, however.

Pete discussed the repeater situation on Coolidge, still desensing, may be due to excessive rf at site, may swap frequencies to eliminate desense. Discussion of Elk Mtn as possible location whenever USFS allows access, Mike Carter, Custer EM, working on that.
