We have authorized the consulting engineers to make application for an increase in power. The plan is to quadruple the power for an effective doubling of the area covered.

This initial part is going to cost $3600 (we'll worry about the transmitter 6 months down the road while we search out a good used one). In the meatime, if you've got some spare change sitting around we could use a little help meeting the new expense.

The C Davis New Orleans Quartet will be playing an evening of traditional New Orleans music and Swing music on September 7th (Sunday), In the Olympia Ballroom, on Legion Way In Olympia Washington, from 7:30 to 10:30 PM.
This will be an amazing evening of music, as will have J essica Langmuir Blinn, singing and playing the violin with us. Also the quartet will swell to 5 pieces, with Joe Baque on piano, Paul Woltz on soprano and bass saxophone, Andy Hall on trombone and Cal Neal on drums.
