We also have recieved and installed an original FT-154 shock mount for the BC-348 reciever that is on the radio operators table. They are alot more rare than the actual radios themselves. Thanks to Tommy Garcia who found, purchased, and donated it to the project.
I also talked with Jerry and Dave about our next couple of operating events. We plan to operate on Sept 17 to commemorate the 64th anniversary of the US Air Force and again on Nov 11 and 12 for Veterans Day.
