Satcom pole

Gary Stainless has completed the crossbar, which Geoff helped him install.
The Iridium dome will sit atop the pole, some 10 feet aloft. I need to get some extra bracing to hold both the satcom pole and radar pole firmly in place, but major progress!

Once I have the satcom BDE (Below Deck Equipment) wired up to the ADE (yes, Above Deck Equipment), I can work on the solar panel placement.

Currently I am testing GRIB programs for weather forecasting.

Also, I am working with Aloft Alone to get some kit on the boat and learn how to use it. More anon…20140810-132139-48099865.jpg
