Appreciate all of the help. Do you know what area they were operating from?

We have not needed much on this end of town and they finally have better than 50% of the homes back on the power grid.

I got one antenna back up and an hope to have my other one up tomorrow.

We have spent the past week cleaning up all of the debris at out place and the in-laws.

I'm not sure what area he was in Ken. I can e-mail and ask if you would like. His call is KF4JZY (Brent). A very good young man. I think he can be e-mailed from the QRZ site if you pull up his call.

Glad to hear you are making progress out there. Hope all is settled and you are able to go back to work before too long.

Jim

Ken,

The group the local ham was with was in Texas City, TX. He mentioned it last night on one of the nets. He said it was a great experience.

Hope you have everything straightened out and are back at work.

They called the IT guys and a few others back in last Wednesday and about 80% of the staff on Thursday. I work for KBR (old Kellogg) and we have 2 towers down town, a facility east of town and one west of town. I work downtown. Had a few windows blown out in the towers and the sky-walks between the the building were blown out and have plywood panels and no carpet.

About 700,000 folks still with no power and are getting a bit putout. East and SE areas are the worst hit. Galveston took it full on for the storm.

We have a long way to go and appreciate all of the help we get from all over the USA.

Ken
