St. Anthony's Hospital

On Staturday 10/8/11 Chris (KJ4JHT) and Zoltan (KJ4EXM) went to St. Anthony's hospital to move the radio head from its old location in the AOD office to an office in the penthouse. After 3 busy hours, we had a fully functioning FT8900-R in a new location! See the project unfold:

The old loacation (with bull horn as speaker) in the AOD office, which did not allow for easy access.

The radio head which is still 150 feet away from the radio body, is connected through these nifty connector boxes, which only require one run of CAT5 cable.

Now which wire goes where?
It all fits neatly in one box.
