B-17 "City of Savannah" Update

The B-17 restoration project is moving along nicely.  The floor in the radio compartment is now installed and the spare transmitter tuners are installed on the right side aft bulkhead.  I was at the museum yesterday to meet with Richard, the project manager to discuss our electrical requirements for the compartment.  We'll have our own distribution point in the compartment for 110vac and they will be installing a 28vdc power supply for us to run our radio gear.  We'll also install a 12vdc supply to run an amateur radio transciever.  Things are coming along nicely. 

It really is a privelege for the local amateur radio community to be involved in this historic project!
