For those on the list interested...

I will not be on Friday night/Saturday morning *but* I have been given a 
9-foot diameter latex baloon and suitable woven stainless-steel wire so 
that I can get a 1/4-wave vertical up on Saturday. This will be a 
dramatic improvement my present low inverted-L! I plan to tether the 
baloon at the feed point of an unused 40-metet vertical so I can take 
advantage of existing sloping radials and feedline already in the shack. 
Hopefully I will be able to work many of you Saturday night and Sunday
