The program was held at the Hobby-Everly Telescope on Fowlkes Mountain near Ft Davis. Jim KD5KBU conducted a tour of the telescope facility and operations room. The facility has been under construction and remodeling for several years, and Jim explained the telescope from an engineering, mechanical, and scientific standpoint. Many changes had been made to the facility since the last BBARC tour approximately one year ago, and it is anticipated that construction will continue for another year. It was a well prepared and very interesting program.
