We got word that our 146.62 repeater receiver and receiving antenna on Farnsworth Peak were in danger — not of being stolen or destroyed, but of being buried beyond recovery by vegetation. We spent an afternoon on July 29 trying to make our way through the jungle.

Yes, there's really a receiver cabinet in there — somewhere.

Given a couple of hours and an electric chain saw, it is possible to find electronics and the lower antenna element.
