Guy Wires Repaired

The guy wires stabilizing the four towers of our antenna array are made of a composite kevlar strand material. But the attachment points at the ends are good old steel. Our super corrosive Bonaire environment made short work of the galvanized guy wire ends in the space of about two years. So our guys replaced the lower ends of all 48 guy wires and have coated them with a special Shell Ensis waxy/greasy compound, dubbed monkeysnot by a veteran TWR missionary, who shall remain nameless. Hopefully, the new guy wire ends will now last for many years.
Here is a collection of photos showing the guy wire project.
