A Dolphin We Did Not Want to See

Many of you have heard about Typhoon Dolphin's arrival on Guam last Friday. Most of Guam lost power and some areas lost water service. Even telephone service has been problematic in many areas. The utility crews have been working hard to get things back to normal. We still do not have power at KTWR, so we have been running our generators.

Dolphin managed to mangle ANT1 during its visit. We are quite grateful that the antenna matrix allows us to use other antennas, so that all of the programs can continue to be aired. There was some minor damage to ANT2A, but we can still use it.

ANT1 must be rebuilt. This process requires several people, so we have been getting help from local volunteers. It will take over a week to lower the antenna, rebuild it, and raise it back up. Please pray for safety for the workers. The antenna field is definitely a hardhat area. Please also pray for endurance and wisdom for those involved in this project. It is very hard work and the weather is quite hot and sticky.
