Trailer Project Update

by Deb KK7DEB on 2015-04-18

The BIG news is that the State Homeland Security Grant that we applied for has been approved!! Our request and funding for equipment is very likely. They list all the approvals in a top to bottom list and we are in the top one third. This will mean over $16,000 in equipment for the trailer. Way to go Adam! The downside is that we will not receive this equipment until October or November.

The insulation is in; the walls are back up and the floor is in. Deb and Will hope to start the wall install this week. John KF7ZWX has the detailed plans worked out for all the wiring. Net control for Walk MS this Saturday will be in the trailer with the equipment we have. This is also going to be used for the April 25 SET. At this point the trailer functions as a shelter only as there is no cabinetry or radio equipment installed yet. It is portable tables and folding chairs and a loaner generator but should serve us well for the time being. Take a look at the checkerboard flooring. We decided to put a little pizazz in the design. If you are interested in helping with the construction, you can contact the trailer crew at trailer [at] multnomahares [dot] org.
