March 17 - 26, 2018
We installed a replacement tower and solar power generating system at the Hurricane Matthew damaged AM station at Torbeck.
We also gave a fresh coat of paint to the inside of the transmitter room.
An assessment was made of the condition of the equipment in the tuning shed. It would need to be repaired and optimized at a later date.
We wish to thank our German friend Helmut for helping out with getting the new cable anchors installed in advance of our arrival on site.
