Most of the work today consisted of wiring up the new Buggy Whip® LED antennas.   Steve Wallace and Steve Rima managed to re-purpose some unused power wires to hook up the Buggy Whip® LED antennas.  After power had been applied, it was like a scene out of Star Wars.  The Buggy Whip® LED antennas are extremely bright.  The North American Eagle® Team will be utilizing Buggy Whip® LED antennas for all of our mile markers, and testing their operational abilities at high speeds. Steve Wallace also used his carpentry skills and finished off work on the Comm Van. It is looking really good and will be ready for our October test session.



The LED lights overpowered the cameras!
