dining, traffic, activities, points of interest, etc.


Thursday, October 26th (gathering day)


Please note that the guided tour of the Stanford Dish has been canceled (the day was just booked by a customer, so we are out of luck).  We will visit the W6YX EME station at the Stanford Radio Club, which is next door, so you can still see the 150' dish up close, we just can't go inside.  Please come to the lobby between 200 and 215 so that we can form carpools to the site (it's gated and locked, so we must arrive as a group).
