Summer is winding down and staff from the System Management Office and the Motorola technicians hope the weather holds and they continue to install GTR site radios at the remaining sites as well as new TX/RX antennas at certain sites. Each GTR upgrade takes approximately 8 – 10 hours to complete and antennas take 4 – 6 hours. As daylight hours wane, getting the mountain top sites completed is a top priority.
The Quantar/GTR Replacement project, which kicked off in July 2020, saw the completion of 17 site upgrades by the end of the year. The goal for 2021 is to complete the upgrades at all of the remaining sites.
