Web report :

For the first time in living memory the schedule is up to date! Thanks to Chloe and individual programmers for the updates.

I activated the RED Banner and an Emergency page for the Cache Fire.


FCC Program List / Issues List (Due Oct 10)

Thanks to Olga and John M for several filings each.  Herb Gura filed one, and LInda K had a carry-over from last quarter.


Note: the Biennial Ownership Report is due Dec 1.  I believe this is filed through the Licencing Management System, not through the Public Information File. The filing window opens Oct 1.


New Computers : 

Now that the schedule is up to date and in the "New" format I'll get back to scripting.  I should be ready to set up the other two computers in early Sept. (I'll need internet lines and remote access),
