Our Plans      

May through July 2013 we acquired equipment, tested and integrated stations and antennas.

In August and September 2013 we are closely monitoring the location of the equipment being shipped via sea container from California to Tarawa via New Zealand and Fiji.

In October 2013 our advance team members arrive on Fiji by the 30th, and fly to Tarawa on the 31st to make arrangements for additional supplies/provisions, and take possession of our container contents.  Our main team arrives on Fiji November 1st before flying to Tarawa early on Nov. 3rd.  That evening both teams begin our sea voyage to Banaba. We arrive at Banaba early on the 5th, meet with locals, inspect planned sites, unload the boat and get 1-2 stations on the air by late evening.

We will be operational late November 5th to early 18th

Once the operational period ends we break down the sites on November 18th, departing by boat late evening to arrive in Tarawa on the 20th. We fly from Tarawa on to Fiji on the 21st for the last legs of our journey back home.
