  Subject: Mt Wilson Communications Site/Mt Harvard/
  Mt Disappointment - access Tuesday 15th?
  E-Mail Date/Time:  September 10, 2009,  12:06 PM PDST
  Dear Permittees,
  As you know the firecrews are backburning from around
  Mt. Wilson down towards Cogswell Dam.
  I have just spoken with the Command Center.  It is possible/
  probable that there will be road access by Tuesday/Wednesday.
  I will email you early Monday.
  The access will be:
  o  Angeles Crest Highway/LaCanada - one way in one way out
  o  Up to 6 vehicles at a time on a pass system
  o  First come first served
  o  Credentials checked and recorded by CHP - fill out paperwork
  o  No more than 6 vehicles on Wilson/Harvard/Disappointment
     mountains at the same time
  o  As a vehicle returns and checked out another is checked in
  o  Daylight hours only - not later than 6.00pm
  o  No very early/very late communication site traffic - wish
     to avoid substantial firecrew traffic.
  The Command Center is firm about requiring the pass system.
  Thanks for your patience.

  Regarding the post in CGC #950 that "CGC has just received
word of a major TV transmitter problem on Mt. Harvard,"  CGC
contacted the company where the information reportedly originated
and they denied having any problem whatsoever.
  If there are major technical problems on Harvard or Wilson
(other than KKLA-FM), please let us know.  For now, Wilson and
Harvard seem to be working relatively well.
