I had a fun time helping Doug K7YD get his Packet Station (SHEEP) back on the air a few days ago. Doug also wanted a APRS DIGIPEATER installed so SHEEPM was put together and configured. Don Heide (W7MRI) tuned up two Motorola Spectra's, I gave Doug the Comet Antenna for Packet, the Dipole from Don Heide is on APRS, and I gave the Kantronics KPC-3 for the project.

It took us a couple hours of work to get all the mice droppings out of the building and get it cleaned. Masks and rubber gloves were the order of the day along with cleaner !!!!!!!! The used vacuum cleaner I donated was discarded after it completed the removal of the mice droppings.
First picture is the Packet/APRS stations and the second is the Antenna's I installed on the tower and ran coax. Thanks for a fun time Doug and enjoy your packet/aprs stations.
To forget ones purpose is the commonest form of stupidity.
The stupid neither forgive nor forget, the naive forgive and forget, the wise forgive but do not forget.
Watch what people are cynical about, and one can often discover what they lack.
George S. Patton
A fanatic is one who can't change his mind and won't change the subject.
Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened.
