We held one final working bee at Quartz Hill on Saturday 19 June 2010. The main task was to clean up the area where the crane had got bogged down while moving the containers on the previous weekend. Everything worked out according to plan. Even the weather was kind, with only the odd spot of rain and a rather balmy 15 degrees!

After completing the work at Quartz Hill, the team travelled to the RNZ premises at Titahi Bay. At Titahi Bay we helped Greg Lochmann ZL1ALH move the Marconi HR21 receiver from one of our containers onto his trailer. Greg is taking the receiver back to his QTH with a view to eventually restoring it to a working state.

While at Titahi Bay we also took the opportunity to restack our steel mast sections, in order to improve access to one of the hatch doors leading to the area beneath the building.

Many thanks to the team who came out on Saturday - Brian ZL1AZE, Bernard ZL2BD (and XYL), Sil ZL2CIA, Mike ZL2VMH and Col ZL2COL.
