Weather had been poor on Thursday so all that had been accomplished was to complete the parts inventory, make a hardware store run for some extra stainless steel screws and to lay out the work for today.  One of the most time-consuming parts of the project was the preparation of the ESTs:

Each EST displays a Steppir Logo

This is one of a series of photos showing Don N4HH looking on while Jim K4DLI does all the work..
