Running The GPR in Dominica


We completed our first grid and ran the GPR with the 400 MHz antenna.  It was sunny and hot, and the surface had lots of stones, which made the going a little difficult.  The Radargrams look good.  Saturday, we will try the EM-38 on the same grid (assuming the cows and goats did not eat all the flags).
