Wild Winds

Bonaire is outside the path of most tropical storms, unlike our Guam station that just took a direct hit from a typhoon.

But this has been a windy year here, with sustained winds frequently above 30mph.  This is great for sea salt production and for windsurfing, but not so good for antenna tower climbing.  We are somewhat behind in our annual tower repairs and painting work this year.

They guys have been busy on the ground though.  New trenches have been dug to the four antenna towers.

A new STL (studio transmitter link) tower has been installed too.  There is a lot more concrete in the ground that you can't see in the photo.  Think "Iceberg."
