Flying out of Byrd with the assistance of two camp members we were able to install a station at I-189(Janet). Instruments heights and notes to follow.

Enclosure # 14413
Argos ID # 8936

Heights(cm):

Lower T: 125
ADG: 145
Pyronometer: 173
Junction box(measured from bottom): 120
Enclosure: 159
Upper T: 379
HMP: 378
Aerovane: 437

After discussion with Jonathan it seems prudent on the next servicing to do a full reinstall, as the tower is upside down making usage of the Aerovane mount impossible, and further tower additions more difficult.
Unavco GPS was placed at the station from approximately 11AM to 4PM
