Guam Infrastructure Upgrades

KTWR, TWR's shortwave radio station on the island of Guam, has been broadcasting the gospel to many parts of Asia since the 1970s. The station infrastructure is approaching 50 years old, and many issues arise due to the age of the facility. The environment on Guam is extremely harsh, with intense UV radiation, humidity and heat, pelting rains, and salt spray from the nearby ocean all pounding away not only on the towers and antennas but also on our building. 

To be sure that our facilities are equipped to meet current and future ministry needs, some important upgrades of the facilities are needed. These include:

  • Forklift: Our 1981 Datsun 3-ton forklift is in constant need of repairs. This is a vital piece of equipment for moving heavy items around the transmitter site. To finish the tower project, it will be crucial to have an operational forklift capable of 5-7 tons. Our goal is to purchase a used forklift, 3-5 years old. Cost: $60,000. 
  •  Backhoe Tires: This is one of our most-used pieces of heavy equipment, and after eight years, our backhoe tires are truly at end of life. Working with worn-down tires is dangerous and can cause personal injury. Cost: $2000 
  • Driveway upgrade: Forty-five years of weather has washed away much of road and parking areas around the site.  Last year, the road was upgraded, but there is still a need to repair the driveway and parking areas directly around the building. Cost: $33,400 
  • Transmitter hall expansion wall: The building housing TWR’s transmitters needs to be expanded for future growth and more equipment. Cost: $93,400
