As you see below, the wall is basically completed. Concrete will be poured into the blocks for added strength. There is some clean-up to do, but we are nearly ready for the next step. That is to build a concrete pad for the switch matrix. We hope to get the framing for the concrete done next week.

We have been blessed with some dry weather during what is normally a wet time of year. This allowed some of the staff members to build a retaining wall in just a few days. The wall is needed to keep rain and mud out of the area in which the antenna switch matrix will be installed. Erosion is a major problem on Guam, so we must think ahead to thwart its effects.

We are pleased to be operating the new transmitters and stepping into this new developing and changing era of broadcasting.
Work continues to go on. We are just starting in the process of a further upgrade that is linked to the transmitter project. We're taking things 'outside' again.
Ground was just broken to get into the concrete work for the antenna switcher matrix we are just getting started with.
The addition of an antenna matrix will add the versatility of being able to use any of our antennas with any of the transmitters. We have always had an antenna designated to a transmitter. This gives us better capability of program placement as well as a more effective redundancy for contingency coverage.
Please pray for progress. We have entered rainy season, but so far have had relatively dry weather - enough to get things started. Staying ahead of the rain will be one of the key challenges.
