Pablo Bryant of the SDSU Field Station Programs took this photo of
a battery-powered radio repeater site he created. This facilitated
a connection on Sunday, April 2, 2006, between the HPWREN backbone
and a Santa Margarita Ecological Reserve exhibit at the Fallbrook
Art of the Flower Festival. The link is expected to be re-used for
a SMER exhibit at the April 23, 2006, Fallbrook Avocado Festival.
