INORDER TO COMPLETE THE COMPUTER ROOM RENOVATION
EFFORT WE NEED TO MOVE THE GINI SYSTEM.  I WOULD LIKE TO 
TAKE THE GINI DOWN FOR 2 - 4 HOURS ON APRIL 13 BEGINNING AT 
0400Z AND MOVE IT.  ACCORDING TO SCHEDULE THIS IS DURING 
THE EAST ECLIPS PERIOD.  DURING THIS TIME NO DATA WILL BE 
RECEIVED OR TRANSMITTED.
     
THANK YOU
