A milestone is a scheduled event signifying the completion of a major deliverable. It is a flag in the work plan to signify a portion of work has been completed.
Today we reached a milestone event in the Guam Transmitter Upgrade Project.
The building and transmitter hall modifications were completed (major deliverable) 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 14,000lb (each) transmitter required the assistance of a crane and flatbed. This is a high risk event because of the potential danger posed to equipment and personnel. Any mishap could stop or change the project timeline.

We are happy to report the move was successful! Thank you for joining us in prayer to keep rain away and maintain personnel and equipment safety.
