  Southern California Edison (SCE) is finishing up their work on Mts. 
Wilson & Harvard and needs to interrupt power for the final hookups.  
During these planned interruptions, stations must of course rely on 
their emergency power generators.

  MT. HARVARD, JUNE 27 INTERRUPTION:  According to SCE's Cynthia Martin, 
"The Mt. Harvard outage is now scheduled for June 27, Monday.  We will 
begin the outage at 8 AM.  It will last, approximately, 10 hours.  This 
outage will only affect the Mt. Harvard customers."

  MT. WILSON, JUNE 28 INTERRUPTION:  The Mt. Wilson outage is scheduled 
for June 28, Tuesday.  This interruption "will only take 30 seconds, 
approximately, and will only affect the Mt. Wilson customers.  This 
outage is to transfer the Mt.
Wilson sub over to the Video 16 kV [circuit] to re-implement the Mt. 
Wilson redundancy system."

  The time for the Mt. Wilson outage has not been set and will depend 
in part on a vote of the users.  Ms. Martin writes, "I have had a 2:30 
AM request, however, I received another request for a daytime outage.  
Please let me know what would work for you and, remember, when I 
receive everyone's request, we will have to finally agree to a 
compromise with which everyone can live."

  While the network stations and the Observatory have cast their votes, 
Cynthia says input from the independents is lacking and she would like 
to hear from them.  Her contact information follows.  Don't forget to 
"reassemble" her disguised e-mail address:

  The Southern California Edison work now being completed is the 
culmination of a project budgeted six years ago to improve power 
reliability.  When completed, Mt. Wilson will once again have main 
and backup power feeds.
