24Jan2011 13:50-14:30 local Militzer/Horst

conditions: calm, upper 30's+, clear

purpose: Cleaning

13:55-14:23 mast down

14:02 Rad cleaned with methanol.  Desiccant ok.

14:09 Kh2O cleaned with methanol.   Went up from 1.0 to 1.2 volts.  Cleaned a bit later with distilled and went up to 2.0 volts

NOTE: Mast bolts ok.   BUT south leg stakes were loose and the footpad rose up when we lowered the mast.   Ground is moist and appears that the stakes have all loosened.   We re-set one stake and pounded down the others but did not have spare stakes and wire to improve the situation substantially.
