REC operational status (updated June 14, 2024 8:00 AM EDT) - For Friday June 14 and most of next week, REC anticipates being in normal operations. Wednesday June 19 is Juneteenth National Independence Day, which is a federal holiday and the FCC is closed. While REC will be "closed" on that day like with all other federal holidays, I will be checking emails throughout the day but phones will be closed. Upcoming reduced operations days: 6/24 and 6/26, both due to family priority.

No matter what I do, family will always come first. My spouse has been rediagnosed with uteran cancer. This is a relapse of something we took care of over 10 years ago through surgery. This time around, surgery is not an option and we have to treat the cancer through a regimen of chemotherapy, imunotherapy and if needed, radiation therapy. The chemo and imuno is normally done in three-week intervals.
