The cleanroom at the AMSAT Pocomoke lab is almost done (only took a year!)...
Check out the little pics I've attached. There are more pics at http://picasaweb.google.com/bob2leo.
We have hung 18 of 22 static-dissipative clear plastic 4'x8' sheets around the cleanroom. The next step for that is laying aluminum strips along all the joints, and hanging the doors, and of course the ante-room entrance.
We have also installed the remaining fluorescent light fixtures of the cleanroom. The next step for that is wiring up the fan motors and light fixtures to the sub-breaker box.
The fire suppression company will return Tuesday of this week to install the sprinklers of the cleanroom (required by MD Fire Code). This is the last hurdle to getting occupancy of the lab and machine shop areas.
Here's the December Lab volunteer schedule: Sat Dec 8 Closed (this is a change since my last email). Sat Dec 15 Open 9am-5pm. Closed remainder of December. I'll send the January schedule later.
We will "fall off" the cleanroom work SOON. Then we'll focus on the tower and Eagle electronic modules. It will be good to finally do ham stuff, not just scrubbing, painting and drilling!
Volunteers are always needed, and even visitors are welcome. If you have any questions, call my cell 443-783-7794 or email me [email protected].
