>>Merle Parton,
>>In case you don't know the latest developments at NSS,
>>let me update you.
>>NSS was decommissioned in early 1996.  The sole remaining
>>facility employee is John Schorpp, the antenna man.
>>The towers and transmitter building are scheduled to be
>>demolished by September 1999.  There has been an
>>appropriation of $4.2 million to demolish the site and
>>convert it to a wildlife preserve.
>>There is a group of people, including John Schorpp, and
>>now me, who learned of this development only this past
>>weekend, that want to stop the demolition and convert
>>the site to a museum of VLF radio technology.
>>As a member of the Antique Wireless Association, I wrote
>>a letter to its president last night, citing the few facts I
>>know, and asking what it might be able to do to aid this
>>venture to convert to a museum.  The AWA operates a
>>large communications museum in Bloomfield, NY, just
>>south of Rochester NY.  It has ties with the Smithsonian
>>There is a public hearing in Annapolis March 8, 1999.  The
>>time is 6:00 p.m. of the Lowe Office Building.  That's all
>>the address I have.  I have handwritten directions to it that
>>John Schorpp handed out at a hamfest we attended this
>>past weekend.
>>John Schorpp has asked me to ask you to consider putting
>>a notice of this meeting on the NSS Web page.  I know
>>this is short notice, and there isn't even a complete address,
>>but let me give you my name and phone number:  Pete
>>Sypher, 301-601-2711.  I'm going to the meeting.  I'm going
>>to spend time and effort for this cause of converting the
>>site to a museum, even though the chances of this being
>>realized are slim, in my estimation.
>>73, let me know what you think about all this.
