EVA 1 Report

Tom Caillouet reporting

EVA#1:

3:00 pm to 4:30 pm

Crew members:

All Crew Members

Location:

Skyline Rim

Transit mode:

V'Ger

Objective:

Placement of Radio Repeater

Results:

Traveled to Skyline Rim using access road from highway. Found that

trails leading to the edge were substantially changed from previous

years. Legal trails did not lead close enough to an acceptable

repeater placement. We held discussions on placing in a less ideal

location and determined that the reduced effectiveness of the signal

along with the increased risk of Skyline Rim placement (no mid-sim

repair EVAs possible) made Radio Ridge a preferable location, despite

it providing far less coverage.
