It never left the pier.  Was not ready for prime time and then
the end of semester came..  Hope to build one this fall.

Tropo around here is amazing.  We have no problem in the
chesapeak bay, since land is always line of sight.  But for the
great lakes, do they have tropo up there?  A good beam I bet
could bring in the packets I bet...
