Guam Transmitter Project: Milestone reached!
April 21, 2011
GUAM — On April 19, 2011, a milestone event was reached in the Guam Transmitter Upgrade Project. The building and transmitter hall modifications were completed to the point where we were able to bring the new transmitters from their storage containers located near the antenna field into the transmitter building. The physical move of the transmitters — weighing 14,000lb each — required the assistance of a crane and flatbed. This was a high risk event because of the potential danger posed to equipment and personnel. Any mishap could have stopped or changed the project timeline, but the move was successful!
This milestone event was a major accomplishment as it marks the start of “phase three” of the project, where the transmitters will be connected and tested. Thank you for joining us in prayer to keep rain away and maintain personnel and equipment safety.
