    Hope you plan on putting lots of photos of the crew coming up and getting ready on the site

    You see that busy engineer (?) with a handheld while talking on the phone at the same time AND sitting in front of all that equipment. That, my friends, is progress. I mean it must be right?

    That is not progress. It is highlighting that we do not have a ton of photos of the GMA folks taken by the over-busy, tired from sleepless windy nights summit staff.

    Progress is getting to see the neat creative pictures the staff took behind the scenes.

    I think that engineer is on the phone with his/her spouse and is playing tetris on a portable gameboy.

    Is that the high tech equivalent of rubbing your stomach and patting your head at the same time?

    Okay - we would like

    1. Pictures of the event - before, during and after

    2. Some insight into how they were set up. Did they link down to their truck to a whatever where?

    3. Any interesting stories to be told? Did a cameraman almost get blown over? Did some equipment fly away in the high winds? Did an observer have to go to the GMA crew's rescue and help pull the whole event off and it would not have been successful without her help?

    to # 2

    They were linked to a satellite truck ( with 2 outlying dishes) parked in the Glen House parking lot. The truck had mast and dish fully extended vertically , with the 2 other satellite dishes narrowly triangulated about 3-4 feet off the truck at the front, fender height. The whole rig was in the near vicinity of the panoramic sign, a hard right from the Glen House entrance road, right in that corner of the parking lot with the best line of sight. That corner probably had the best angle to resend uplink as our satellite signal in the Whites is pretty narrow.

    Sorry I can't help with the other 2, I was in the Notch downside for employee orientation at Wildcat.

    Mike Pelchat was awesome in presenting "AED for Everyone", what a rush of understanding how so few seconds do count and how ANYONE can truly help in a cardiac emergency with an AED.

    The biggest thing I took away from his presentation was to be careful how you ask for help.... if someone calls 911 they will not be let off the telephone connection until the ambulance or first responder arrives. MAKE SURE the person who is designated to call for help is not needed to tend the patient. AED is a lifesaver, attend an informational session if you haven't already !
    Sorry for the hijack, it was BIG DEAL for me .
