0300 UTC Friday, September 15 – I went with our Facility Manager, Pat Travers, on a drive through our antenna field today. It was rough driving through the swampy, wet, muddy terrain which reminded me of the safari game drives I took in South Africa a couple of weeks ago. I saw why it is so difficult to repair the damage from Hurricane Irma in the field. There are transmission lines down all over the place, and many of the poles that hold them up need to be repaired or replaced. It is a big project, and our engineers are working on it one by one. We got one more transmitter on the air today (Transmitter 7, 21525 kHz), and we hope to get a few more on the air tomorrow. Our telephone and Internet service is still down. –Jeff White, General Manager
