Back to the Top

Here are few pictures of work on the radio station. The last couple of weeks we have had a lot of rain. When Andrew was inspecting the transmitter room he found a bad plug that was arcing. He call me over and while looking at the problem I saw another problem. Water was leaking down through the antenna line into the combiner for the station. After months of looking for the problem it became obvious what it was, somewhere there was a cut in the main line. Upon climbing the tower I began checking the antennas and the line. On top I found the problem. We also brought two of the antennas down to check them out. Upon inspection of the antennas we found that they are in perfect condition. Praise the Lord! Now we need to replace a few parts. New transmission line/jumpers needed, a power divider and one adapter to connect the new line. It will cost us $650.00 total to finish getting the station back on the air. If you would like to help us complete the station and get it on the air please drop us an email at Clarkmvimi@ntamar.net or Rikakisteve@gmail.com
Thank you for all of your prayers and support. Be blessed in all that you do!
Running with the Vision,
Steve, Shawn, Travis, Stephen and Richard
