Arrived late - after 11, because I was helping the Fort Bragg Day of the Dead Alter Hall by carting a truckload of supplies there.  Fair trade for all the help I got from one of them in working the Ruth Moody show in Ukiah last Saturday.

2 PM: enough reports that 88.1 is not working right means that I will leave here early and go up to the Bald Hill tower site above Fort Bragg and see what's going on.

We got enough in from the pledge drive that we fully paid off our line of credit.  That makes 8 months out of the past 12 where the line has a balance of zero.

We're waiting to see what our CPB grant amount will be.  Then we will know how many of our big annual bills can be paid without risking running out of cash before the next fundraising effort. 

We learned that we can't locate a studio in much of downtown Ukiah near the courthouse because their newish zoning districts prohibit putting telecommunications antennas on roofs in that neighborhood.  That means we have to look elsewhere.  It's complicated to explain, but a Ukiah studio must also be able to handle sending the basic radio signal up to the transmitter on Laughlin Peak.
