This afternoon everything came together. Tuning went just right, lightning hit the tower and did absolutely nothing to the transmitter. We went on with the full 1000 watts just in time for Ecos de Opalaca, Radio Lenca's great interview and education program, then stayed on till about 6:30 pm when we all took off for a wonderful meal and good-by celebration from the good folks at COPINH. It sounds good, and already we have reports of people picking us up in Comayagua, pretty far off, about 2 1/2 hrs. by car.
Thanks to everyone who pulled so hard to get this tower up and transmitting, especially to all the great COPINH volunteers who made super human efforts and sacrificed so much to make this happen.
