We had a very good day again – we’re so close to finishing all the dipoles. Only 100 turrets left and we’re there, so, so exciting.
We’ve also written almost 4000 labels (i’d say i’ve written about 70% of them – that’s a lot of letters!)
The pile of boxes has steadily decreased – this is the last lot, our shipping container is completely empty.
We also had a team out ranging far from base to get to the final tiles. We have dipoles laid out and labelled on 114 tiles, so now just cabling required. We’re also expecting the beamformers tomorrow morning, which brings in another job as well.
We’re looking forward to finishing the last dipoles tomorrow morning (wow!) and the truck from Perth bringing up our beamformers, along with a care package from home base. Only 3 days left and we’re looking good.
