First - thanks for the warning.  We plan to trek up to ... well, I
guess I won't disclose exactly where now ...  but if all else fails,
I've got a cousin in the (now nameless) town.

More importantly, regarding the path of totality.  Ward, N0AX, gave an
interesting presentation at the MicroHAMs conference last spring.  In
it, he mentioned a propagation project involving RF through/under/over
the path and that we'd hear more about it soon.  Anyone heard anything
about that?

The presentation was not about that propagation project but is
interesting just the same.
