Transmitter Maintenance

Since the site has been in project mode for so long, continuously working to improve the operation of the site, it has been difficult to keep up with the scheduled maintenance of the transmitters.  However, with our new intern, Sol, and the Brunson family, who are here on Guam for a vision trip as they work towards raising financial support to join the team, we have the manpower to perform some overdue maintenance of the transmitters!

First up, our 100kW HCJB transmitter!  We vacuumed out and wiped down the different compartments of the transmitter, changed the water in the cooling system, replaced the weatherstripping on the doors of the modulator cabinet, and visually inspected for any damage.

Next up, our two 250kW Thomson transmitters!  We opened up the transmitters, cleaned all the different compartments, and visually inspected for any damage.

It was helpful to have the manpower necessary to complete these tasks in one day.  We are looking forward to the day when all of those raising support to join the team here on Guam, so we can keep up to date with these tasks that help ensure the reliability that we strive for!
