As many of you may already know, our Section Emergency Coordinator Paul Silverzweig N1PSX has already deployed this year to Texas to provide support after Hurricane Harvey and to Puerto Rico to provide support after Hurricane Maria.
Paul has been asked to return to Puerto Rico to provide additional support. He will be leaving this weekend to assist for several weeks. I wish him luck and I’m proud to serve under his leadership here at RI ARES.
P.S. Here are some photos and a video of the Arecibo Observatory he posted from his last trip to Puerto Rico:
“On our way to a repeater mounting, we came across signs for this which all of us wanted to see… we managed to get inside by being nice, something it would seem many Americans there were unable to muster…
The worlds largest radio telescope until recently when China completed construction on theirs, the Arecibo Radio Telescope is amazing… it sustained some serious damage during the two hurricanes, but will be repaired once the island gets stabilized…”
