Dear Folks,

Began our slow conquest of the radios today. After messing around all day we finally came up with two good racks at about 4 pm. Still don't know what we did to fix them, but they work and that's all that counts. Two down and three to go. I'd better slow down. Wouldn't want to get back before Saturday. I'm scheduled for guard Saturday night.

Boy, when it rains here it really pours! I guess it must be because of being right on the coast.

I must remember to get some more papers and envelopes. If I write one page letters I've got three days worth left. I don't have that many envelopes though.

That's it,
