Had a minor flood at the VE3LSR site this past week. The rains and melting, coupled with the frozen ground saw us mopping up another 80 litres of water from the floor today. 
Fortunately the water alarm we installed a few years ago notified us by email and VA3VD organised a cleanup. There was no damage due to the flood to any radio or computer equipment but exercise was had by both Dave (VA3VD) and Chuck (VA3SD).  

We have a new plan for this summer that will involve some digging.  We will let you know when to show up at the site!

The Wet/Dry Vacuum we used to collect the water from the floor decided to quit during this latest exercise, so we are on the lookout for anyone with a surplus wet/dry vacuum, preferably in the 5gallon size the we can use at the repeater site.  We need to leave it there so that any of the responsible people can respond when we get an alarm.  Let us know if you have one that we can use.  Email us at This email address is being protected from spambots.
