been downgraded to a CAT 2 it is still a dangerous hurricane. Conditions 
are favorable for strengthen and BOHICA's direction is uncertain at this 

LANG uses armed military conveys to transport supplies from the Wal-Mart 
distribution center in Opelousas to the Red Cross shelters in Acadia and 
St Landry Parishes. The Red Cross is still in desperate need of HAM 
radio operators to set up a communication link from the newly opened 
shelters in St Landry and Acadia Parishes. AARA members begin to 
organize, AMOS and the club's antenna trailer are recovered from 
storage. AARA members are planning to provide EMCOMM for the newly 
opened shelters in Acadia and St. Landry Parishes. All ham repeaters, 
cell phone, land line and internet service is down.

Troy Landry is seen being interview by Jeraldo in front of governor's 
office. After the interview the governor orders the LANG and State 
police to locate and transport the film crew to Troy's house before the 
2 tree shakers break the lines.

Oil reaches $400.00 BBL



Here are some possible difficulties we may need to overcome:
1) Divide our radio operators between two different sites.
2) Maintain a 24/7 radio link between these sites using both voice and 
digital modes
3) Divide our radio gear between the sites
4) Construct wire antennas at one or both sites
5) Where do we get our power from? Generator, battery, solar ?
