Yeah, I saw that thing on the news too. Pretty impressive scale. They said it would be able to track objects the size of a baseball at 3000 miles away. Impressive. Imagine the quick tan one could get standing close to it.

Where are they putting that thing, Steve? I heard it was going West of the mouth of the Strait of Juan de Fuca.

well..Vector marine is doing the repairs/mods (aka todd shipyard)....then she goes back to alaska where she'll be evaluating the over the pole routes....
actually the tan isn't the problem.....it's the fact that they don't need a microwave to make dinner !!!
she is NOT going to be at the mouth of the SJDF.....
the indians would have a fit

That's what I get for listening to the news! Yeah, I can imagine them along with some other folks, for sure.
