VLA is the heat! Come on back to Bragg and I'll give you a lesson on RF propagation and how it works.

Those antennae are on a rail system, and can be moved into several configurations as needed for research. We've mapped galaxies, atmospheres, and more from that site.

2wheel let me know when you post up the report and throw in the link. West to east or east to west?

Hit the shop today. Everything i needed was in stock minus the rear sprocket. I'll have that in thursday, and we should be heading to utah NTL Friday!

One of the service techs at Apache Motors here is an avid rider of southern Utah, and hooked me up with a quick list of all kinds of neat places and cool roads.

Colorado isn't cooperating with me. New plan, unless a freak heat wave rocks the snow build up and thaws alot of it, is to ride to Grand Canyon, then California and I'll swing back by for Utah/Colorado if I can

~$300 later, I have a new chain, 2 new sprockets, and Utah on my mind.

I've ridden every road in the Phoenix mountains, and it's time to roll on out. Should be underway in the AM

Didn't you just say you were heading for California? I'm confused. You're making decisions like my wife.
