NEWS UPDATE — Our preparations are on schedule. The team is very grateful for the great sponsoring from the ham community.
The antenna material is stored in Tarawa at Chuck Corbett. The PIPA Kanton Coordinator, Tuake Teema, confirmed that our two generators were in excellent condition and we have two drums (400 liters) fuel available on the island.
