Setup continues under nearly ideal conditions.  Installation of the rather complex communications is underway.  Having the main AMF2 data system in the valley, two instrumented mountain sites and final transmission of the data out through the Storm Peak Lab connection is a non-trivial task.  Other activities included the installation of several radiation sensors.  The AMF2 AOS container arrived yesterday in good shape with mountain installation expected later in the week.
