COMMENTARY Adjusting my readjusted attitude adjustment Of the 58 Thanksgivings I’ve seen, this one had a little extra ‘relish’ on it. It wasn’t just that I ate everything in sight at Caf Paci c yesterday (just joking Dr. Lindborg — I was a good boy). It’s because last Thanksgiving, I was recovering from a heart attack and my feast that day was low-sodium shredded wheat — not exactly what comes to mind when you think of Thanksgiving. But, despite my meager meal, I was very thankful to be around to eat that shredded wheat. It was the best I ever tasted. By nature, I’m a glass-is-half-empty sort of guy. But there’s nothing like a tap on the shoulder from God to get someone’s attention and readjust an attitude. I had always let little things at work and home drive me bananas. After my little ‘wake up call,’ I vowed not to let unimportant things upset me so much and to look at the bright side of stuff. I’d like to say that lasted for a long time, but I only made it about six months before I fell back into my old ways. It’s hard to change sometimes. I’ll get cranky if the line is too long at the bakery or Ten-Ten. If my computer at work goes down or runs like molasses, I’ll go a little ballistic (picture an enraged rhino). If the TV picture goes out while I’m watching a program at home, I’ll get exasperated and yell words that make me glad I don’t have any children around. In my more lucid moments, I know in the big scheme of things that computer woes, waiting in line, TV programs and even some aspects of work are pretty unimportant. My wife always tells me it’s going to be something small and insigni cant that’s going to do me in. If I ever have another heart attack or a stroke and die because of something trivial — man, that’s really gonna make me mad! I go to the hospital periodically to get my blood pressure checked, and sometimes it’s a little high. The doctor will get me in his of ce and kindly lecture me on not letting small things, or for that matter, big things, bother me so much. “What are you doing — do you want to DIE?” he asks. Well, no, not particularly. I mean, you know, I haven’t nished annoying my wife yet. I hope to drive her crazy for many years to come. I guess I’ll try to get back to putting things in perspective and remembering that I have the best wife in the world, great co-workers, a job I like doing, and oh, yeah, I live on this beautiful island and I’m not shoveling snow. So, do me a favor. If you see me fuming in line at Ten-Ten or the bakery, or hear me screaming sweet nothings at my TV or computer, just smack me upside my thick head (not too hard please). Maybe that will remind me of all the things I’m thankful for and adjust my readjusted attitude adjustment. To the people who organized the Java Caf. A special thumbs up to the high school teens who were servers and bus boys.

The visits to George Seitz Elementary and the Jr. and Sr. High Schools, arranged by former Kwajalein teacher Jane Premo and kindergarten teacher Judy Kirchner, were the second in two years. “We had done some mini inservice meetings with the teachers at Jabro on Ebeye in the past and shared ideas about classroom organization, lesson planning, using pocket charts, and other tips we had learned along the way as teachers,” Kirchner said. “When talking with the teachers in some of those sessions, they expressed an interest in seeing how classrooms on Kwaj operate.” “I really believe that teachers learn a lot from other teachers, how other teachers interact with their students and how they deliver or teach, all the skills and styles,” said Jabro Private School Principal Kiorong Sam. Teachers were matched to their Kwajalein counterparts by subject areas or grade levels by Premo and escorted around campus. The Jabro teachers were able to spend time following classes talking with the teachers they observed. “We value education for both our communities,” said Kirchner, explaining the reason for arranging the visit and suggestions by Kwajalein teachers for more opportunities for observation as well opment.

The Worthy a former U.S. naval ship assigned to USAKA in the early 1990s, supports a variety of missions that involve data collection and communication with airborne assets such as missiles and aircraft. The plane modi cation began when the Kwajalein Mobile Range Safety System, the mission related portion of the Worthy recently upgraded the telemetry, communications, networks, range safety and ship subsystems. KMRSS needed a cost-effective way to test the capabilities of the upgrades before heading out to Hawaii in support of several missions. A custom-con gured aircraft simulating a missile and other mission assets t the pro le. “Utilizing the Metroliner allowed us to emulate some of the characteristics of a real mission,” said Dr. Shawn Ohler, Massachusetts’s Institute of Technology/Lincoln Labs Technical staff. The Worthy and the converted Metroliner operate together to simulate real missions. Converting the Metroliner saved a great deal of money for the range.

(Photo by John Bohrer) See TEST BED, Page 16 Lollar, “and MIT and AirScan in Fla., our parent company, got together and put together a plan.” “Airscan generated the design package, obtained Federal Aviation Administration approval, procured the antennas, power inverter, cables and equipment racks, and installed these items all at their own expense,” said Mark Thimsen, KRS Systems engineer and Worthy Upgrade Project lead. “Using existing airborne test beds would have required modifying them for our purposes and then having the aircraft along with ight and support crew resident on Kwajalein for several months,” said Bob Hamel, MIT/ LL Technical staff. “That would have been prohibitively expensive.” Once the parts arrived, AirScan identi ed Aircraft 680 for modi cation, one of its three planes, and took out all the seats. Hamel set to work planning how to con gure the experimental hardware on the plane for the sole purpose of testing the upgraded equipment on the Worthy The AirScan maintenance staff started the process of determining the placement of eight antennas, drilling holes in the body of the plane to attach the antennas and fabricating custom racks to hold the experimental hardware. The maintenance staff had to undertake many considerations when attaching the various antennas to the plane. If an antenna was placed on the wrong side, a vehicle could tear off the antenna loading cargo on the plane. “The actual modi cation, once all the materials were here, took us ten days,” Lollar said. The unexpected speed at which the team performed the modi cation included 14-hour days. “We had to do 14-hour days because the maintenance on the other planes didn’t go away,” Bill Givens, AirScan director of maintenance said. “In fact, when you only have two airplanes doing the work of three, maintenance on those two planes goes up. “I was really surprised at the amount of equipment we put in this aircraft, the amount of hardwiring we added and the amount of holes added,” continued Givens, “and we haven’t had a single problem.” Once the plane was completely modi ed, it was ready to test the upgraded systems. AirScan pilots ew the plane while two or three technicians and engineers operated the equipment in the now bare fuselage. “[Sometimes] the ship stayed in port, red up all the equipment they could in port and we would y racetrack patterns over the top of the ship,” Lollar said. “The MIT guys would set up and give us these fairly complicated series of coordinates. It was not uncommon for them to put in 60 way points, where you y from designated point to point. The pilots had to hit those way points within a speci c time frame.” Initially MIT asked for 22 test ights, but AirScan pilots were able to perform the required tasks in six ights.

Saturday, Nov. 25, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6 By David Ross and Tom Wright3D Weather Research As Kwajalein residents probably recall, the month of October was very soggy. October finished with 19.91inches of rain, and while that was well above the normal of 11.46 inches, it fell just short of the record of 20.05 inches, set back in 1964. Oct. 31 started out looking like a new record was in the of ng, but as the day progressed, the rain dried up and the weather turned out relatively pleasant, much to the delight of trick-or-treaters. Having been so close to breaking the 40-year old record, last month has earned the title of the second wettest October, since record-keeping of KwajaleinÂ’s weather observations began back in 1945. In addition to being near record-breaking levels, October was the rst month of 2006 to end with a yearly surplus of rainfall, and the best of three months to end with a monthly surplus. At the beginning of the month, Kwajalein faced a de cit of 6.11 inches of rain for the year, but managed to end it 2.34 inches higher than normal for the year, racking up an 8.45 inches gain in just 31 days. Some of those days may have seemed longer and drearier than others, as a weekÂ’s worth of days received over an inch of rainfall, the rainiest of which was Oct. 7 with 3.25 inches. October was not only wet, but lightning lit up the sky numerous times and several tropical disturbances came calling during the month. All of these phenomena can be attributed to the presence of El Nino, or an unusual warming of the waters of the central and eastern Paci c. When El Nino develops, the warm water helps to fuel convection, and it also allows the monsoon trough, which normally stays west of Kwajalein, to in ltrate our area. In fact, the monsoon trough extended across the Wet, wild month n o r the rn Mar sh a lls for m uch of Octobe r. T he monsoon troug h no t o n l y b rings rain an d l i gh tnin g b ut wes t win ds w h i ch buffeted K wa j a l ein on severa l occ a s i o n s in Octobe r Th e accompan y in g l ar g e wester ly swe lls was h e d up on t he b eac h in many p l aces b ringing d e b ris ont o roa d s an d fl oo d in g so m e ar e a s I t wa s n Â’t all b a d t h oug h C h i ld r e n an d a dults a l i ke w e r e t r e a ted to a rar e o pportunit y to ri d e t h e waves at Emon Beach on Oct. 7 and 8 as high tides allowed the swells to cross the west reef and break along the swimming area. So whatÂ’s to come in the months ahead? El Nino is still going strong, and computer models indicate it will continue into the winter. Since this El Nino started late in the year, its effects will likely continue later than usual. That means above normal rainfall and an increased potential for tropical cyclones to develop near Kwajalein can be expected through the end of the year. The rainfall excesses should then be followed by a period of drought lasting, on average, up to a year. After the 1997 El Nino, Kwajalein went into a drought that lasted nearly two years and racked up a de cit of over 50 inches. After a wet and wild fall in 2006, history would suggest that 2007 will be dry, perhaps very dry, on Kwajalein.By Tom WrightChief Meteorologist 3D/RTS WeatherWhile unusually warm water has been in place around the Marshall Islands since this summer, the warm waters have nally extended to the South American coast and thus El Nino is now of cially occurring. Water temperatures near Kwajalein are currently 1.2 degrees Celsius above normal, and computer models indicate that El Nino will continue through the end of the year. During an El Nino there is an increased chance of seeing a tropical storm or typhoon in the Marshall Islands, particularly late in the year. In general, October through December is by far the most active period for tropical cyclone activity in the Marshalls with approximately 70 percent of all storms having occurred within those three months. The last two signi cant El Ninos produced Typhoon Paka passing within 80 miles to our south in December 1997, and Tropical Storm Talas which passed 10 miles to our south in December 2004. In August of this year, Super Typhoon Ioke passed about 450 miles to our north, and since then there have been numerous other tropical disturbances that affected the northern Marshalls. This genesis area will continue to shift southward through the end of the year, putting us at even greater risk. The point of this is not to frighten anyone, but rather to reiterate the importance of preparedness. The time to prepare for a tropical storm or typhoon is before there is one out there. Have you assembled your personal survival kit as directed on Pages 5-12 of the 2006 Kwajalein phone book? By the time the rst storm warning is issued, it may be too late to get supplies together. If the fully stocked shelves in a stateside store can empty out in a matter of hours, imagine how fast local supplies will go in the face of a natural disaster. Please take the time to prepare. Put together the survival kits. Read Pages 5-20 in the 2006 phone book so you know what to do. ItÂ’s better to be safe than sorry.Kwajalein residents urged to prepare for severe weather October rain fell just short of new record

A sailboat owned by resident Carol Todd broke loose from its mooring over the Veterans Day weekend and ended up high and dry at Camp Hamilton. (Photos by Nell Drumheller)Sailboat gets beached at Camp Hamilton No place for a boatBy Nell DrumhellerEditorOver the Veterans Day weekend high winds helped move a boat from the private boat mooring area of the Small Boat Marina to Camp Hamilton. “When the weather switches from doldrums to the trade winds, it is a common time when moorings break free,” Paul McGrew of the Kwajalein Range Services SBM said. McGrew said the mooring lines broke loose from the boat. Boat owner Carol Todd said she was awakened at 7:10 a.m., Nov. 11 by a phone call. “My boat was on the beach. My procrastinations on replacing my mooring chain had caught up with me.” She said a ride to Hamilton Beach “con rmed my boat was beached.”“Mike Herrington, Dale Finley and others decided to wait till near high tide to try to get her a oat,” Todd s ai d M cG r ew a dded th a t i t took t eam wor k to get t he bo a t o ff o f t h e be a c h “ T h e captain was ver y l uc ky T h e b oat b ro ke l oose at h ig h ti d e an d the r e wa s minima l d ama g e, ” McGre w said. “ At a b out 4 p.m th e b oating commu nit y started arrivin g ” Todd said. “Anchors were placed; a fulcrum was rigged to keep the boat on her side. And the water started rising; inside the boat, too.” She added, “People pumped, people pushed and the anchor ropes were cranked. Finally there was movement; Paul McGrew arrived with a power boat to help pull.” The boat was back to its mooring by nightfall. McGrew said it is up to boat owners to check his or her moorings to ensure they are in shape. “Boat owners should inspect their moorings on a regular basis,” McGrew said. “Friends, the boating community and just nice people were so kind and helpful,” Todd said. “They hugged me, said they were sorry. And the work and effort that was put in was astonishing.”

Sunrise/set Moonrise/set High tide Low tideTEST BED, from Page 5Each ight was a fraction of the cost of what it would have been otherwise, Lollar said. “Mike Hendrix [AirScan pilot] planned this thing out really well and established the protocols that we needed to make each ight really successful,” continued Lollar. “It was fairly standardized, they [MIT] knew what to expect, and I think all test objectives were met. I don’t think that they missed any.” The real Herculean feat for AirScan was its ability to ful ll its contractual requirement with KRS of maintaining all three planes and keeping its Kwajalein to Roi-Namur commuter shuttle on schedule while simultaneously modifying the aircraft and supporting the KMRSS testing. “AirScan normally supports commuting personnel back and forth to Roi, not supporting RTS testing,” Ohler said. “Fortunately, everyone involved saw the value of this type of testing and worked together to make the project successful.” “Eventually there is the potential for the Metroliners to be range assets as opposed to just logistics assets,” Lollar said, “and given the cost of research and development, aircraft using satellites and things like that, if you had that capability inhouse, it’s a range asset that could potentially generate revenue for the range.” “Down the road they may want to call up the modi ed plane again,” continued Lollar. “Right now it’s back to shuttling passengers back and forth to Roi-Namur. The racks are out, the seats are in and the plane is back in service.” Santa’s coming!
